Although nearly every American under 30 uses the Internet in some capacity (a whopping 98 percent of millennials are online), younger people are more likely to believe that there’s useful information that’s only available offline. While 62 percent of citizens under 30 ascribe to this belief, only 53 percent of those 30 and older agree.
This and other information revealed by a recent PewResearch project could begin to explain why millennials are actually more likely to have picked up a book in the past year than their older peers. According to the study:
Some 43 percent report reading a book — in any format — on a daily basis, a rate similar to older adults. Overall, 88 percent of Americans under 30 read a book in the past year, compared with 79 percent of those age 30 and older.
Hmmmm, and when did more and more libraries start having teen services librarians?
Look, there’s someone out there who doesn’t want you to read any book you could name. I’m not interested in giving them specific titles. I’m interested in finding you stories that speak to you.
I made a thing today. #teenlibrarians #librarydisplay
Newton Le Willows library is fizzing with great books

Hey, not sure when you sent this, but as far as I can remember, rando anon, I never reviewed or responded to Graffiti Moon, and I haven’t read it. Can you point me to what you were referring to?

I just can’t.
