Public Library Engagement Typology

June 12, 2014 at 12:45 am 1 comment

The Pew Research Center’s Internet Project has intensively studied the changing world of public libraries for the last three years. The first stage of our research explored the growing role of ebooks, including their impact on Americans’ reading habits and library habits. Our second stage examined the full universe of library services, as well as what library services Americans most value and what they might want from libraries in the future.

third and final stage of research—the fruits of a representative national survey of 6,224 Americans ages 16 and older. It explores public libraries’ roles in people’s lives and in broader American culture—how libraries are perceived, how they are valued, and how people rely on them.

    Thanks for the post. I’m wanting to do a study on non-library users in Georgia and why they choose to not use the library. I think the PEW study findings will help. Have a good day
