A recent study by Pew Internet found that younger Americans, ages 16-29, visit libraries and check out books at a rate very similar to adults older than 30. About 65 percent of adults of all ages have visited a library in the past year, and about 70 percent have read a print book in the last year.
Where the similarity ends between the two groups, though, is in the use of technology and the use of library space. The study found that 38 percent of Americans ages 16-29 have used computers and the Internet at libraries in the past year, compared with only 22 percent of those ages 30 and older.
