Younger Americans’ Reading and Library Habits

Pew – Younger Americans’ Reading and Library Habits

 More than eight in ten Americans between the ages of 16 and 29 read a book in the past year, and six in ten used their local public library. At the youngest end of the spectrum, high schoolers in their late teens (ages 16-17) and college-aged young adults (ages 18-24) are especially likely to have read a book or used the library in the past 12 months. And although their library usage patterns may often be influenced by the requirements of school assignments, their interest in the possibilities of mobile technology may also point the way toward opportunities of further engagement with libraries later in life.

    Thanks for your comment, Silver Holly. We’re gratified to see the explosion in art & crafts book publishing over the past decade. Cookbooks too
