Milennials Are Out-Reading Older Generations

According to this pew study more millennials are reading than every but few are getting their books from a public library.  (Let’s be honest though, they are forced to read so many books every year because of federal guidelines and often their schools will be proving those books).  The study does acknowledge that women, minorities, and lower income individuals would tend to value libraries more than the affluent and young.  There was acknowledgement at the end that the under 30 crowd are aware that there is a lot of information not found on the internet, though according to the study that does not mean that they value libraries…a little contradictory.
