Library Construction Update

09 Jan

The latest Pew report has this data:
•95% of Americans ages 16 and older agree that the materials and resources available at public libraries play an important role in giving everyone a chance to succeed;
•95% say that public libraries are important because they promote literacy and a love of reading;
•94% say that having a public library improves the quality of life in a community;
•81% say that public libraries provide many services people would have a hard time finding elsewhere.

Amazingly high numbers. I will continue to be updating my blog with new reports about the construction. Dee
