More people visiting libraries than ever – just not always in person
More patrons are using area libraries, though they’re not always walking through the library doors.
Visits to library websites through computers and mobile apps, as well as the use of e-books, are on the rise based on studies and firsthand accounts from area librarians. A recent Pew study reports about 13 percent of Americans 16 and older used a mobile device to visit a library website during the past year, up from 6 percent in 2009.
Still, library officials stress, don’t count out the draw of an actual book in hand.
