Lee Rainie, director of Internet, Science and Technology Research at the Pew Research Center will cover the latest findings of the center’s public opinion polling about Americans use of libraries and their feelings about the role that libraries play in their lives and in their communities at the American Library Association Conference in Orlando. The new findings will cover the latest library-usage trends, book-reading trends, and insights into the ways more and more Americans hope libraries will offer community-oriented and educational services.
