Computers and Books in Libraries

Interesting new Pew Report:

Public libraries and technology: From “houses of knowledge” to “houses of access” — http://pewrsr.ch/1rSXCdX

 

Some 77% of Americans now think it is “very important” for public libraries to provide free access to computers and the internet to the community, and 95% think it is important overall. (For comparison, 80% of Americans say that it is “very important” for libraries to provide books to the community for borrowing.)
