The library is home to not only books
By now, everyone has heard the idea that the printed word may be on its way out. Bookstores are closing, magazines are shutting down, and even textbooks are going digital.
At the Addison Public Library, we’re not so sure that there’s no room in the world for paper and ink – our circulation statistics speak to the fact that there is plenty of demand for books, magazines and newspapers in Addison. When we polled more than 200 library patrons over the course of a few days last month, about 90 percent reported that they enjoyed reading print material.
But we’re also happy to embrace the sort of technology that many might think would leave us trembling in fear. The fact that e-books, websites, podcasts and other digital media are becoming increasingly popular actually excites us – we can’t wait to get in on the action! One-third of our survey respondents agree, and more will surely follow suit.
