Younger Americans’ Library Habits and Expectations

Recomended reading:

This is an interesting look at the fact that younger Americans (ages 16-29) are still reading in print. A Pew study finds that 75% of those surveyed have read at least one book in print in the last year. This is higher than older Americans (ages 30 and above); only 64% of them have read a print book in the last year.

The most important part, to me, was that younger Americans as just as likely to visit a library as their older counterparts. And it’s not just for technology, “once there they borrow print books and browse the shelves at similar rates.” Interesting.
