Librarian Blogs: PEW Research Center Public Library Report

Recently, the PEW Research Center released another new public library report as part of the Internet & American Life Project, “Younger Americans’ Library Habits and Expectations.” I read this interesting report  and I think it will be very expedient for all the library staff, faculty members, and students especially at this time. So I would like to share this with everyone here at the campus.

Abstract of the report: Americans ages 16-29 are heavy technology users, including in using computers and internet at libraries. At the same time, most still read and borrow printed books, and value a mix of traditional and technological library services.

Read the full report here.

Editor’s Note: Chesnutt Library tweeted about this report this summer:
