Pew Internet & American Life Project on Younger American’s Library Habits and Expectations

The Pew Internet & American Life Project late last month issued a new report on the library habits and expectations of younger Americans, i.e., those aged 16-29.

Please see here for a summary of the report’s findings as well as related information and links.

And the full report is here.

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.
