      Libraries drew visits by more than half of Americans in the past year for all kinds of purposes

      Pew Internet & American Life Project: Information Searches That Solve Problems, 12/30/2007

      Press release:
      "People who have faced one of several common government-related problems in the past two years are more likely to consult the internet than other sources, including experts and family members....The survey results challenge the assumption that libraries are losing relevance in the internet age. Libraries drew visits by more than half of Americans (53%) in the past year for all kinds of purposes, not just the problems mentioned in this survey. And it was the young adults in tech-loving Generation Y (age 18-30) who led the pack. Compared to their elders, Gen Y members were the most likely to use libraries for problem-solving information and in general patronage for any purpose."
