The 2007 State of America’s Libraries Report

April 23, 2007

The American Library Association (ALA) released their 2007 State of America’s Libraries Report on April 20th. This report provides the most up-to-date national data on library use which was up for adults, kids and students. For the good news–usage is up, programs are increasing, nuts-and-bolts services are still heavily used; and the bad news–despite the research that links school libraries with student achievement were hard hit by funding cuts last year. Read the entire report and learn about all the great things happening at libraries around the country. If you have any suggestions for programs, materials or anything else the Library might provide please let us know–767-1560 or we have a suggestion box on our homepage: http://www.essexlibrary.lioninc.org/
