44% of Americans say they went to a library in the past 12 months

Pew Research Center has just released a detailed report on libraries and learning in the US.

76% of the respondents say that libraries serve well the learning and educational needs of their communities.

44% claimed that they went to a library or bookmobile in the past 12 months. It seems fair enough, but we observe the downward trend: 2% down compared to April 2015, and 9% since November 2012.

More and more patrons use a library website, but there is almost no change since September 2013.
