How People Fit Libraries Into Their Lives

How People Fit Libraries Into Their Lives

Quick takes:

  • More of the public used to library to complete an online class or certification
  • The higher level of trust in information sources – the more likely people are to feel drawn to information acquisition
  • a quarter of the population is information wary – do not exhibit much interest in acquiring digital skills or the wherewithal to determine what information is trustworthy
  • The most eager are the ones who wish libraries were closer to their homes
