Libraries still play vital role

Libraries still play vital role | Tennessee Libraries | Scoop.it

"Many public libraries attract more patrons than ever. People of all ages flock to them. Individuals of all ages -- especially the poor, the elderly and those in rural areas -- come to the library because it often is the only place they can get online and connect to the digital world. That's hardly a surprise. About a third of Americans still do not have broadband access at home."

GivingMatters.com - Public Libraries - Middle Tennessee's Library Resources

"In a state in which 1 in 8 adults cannot read (Tennessee Literacy Coalition), and the reading proficiency rate for third graders is under 50% (wbir.com), the educational importance of libraries cannot be understated. The critical need for programs that will increase literacy has long been acknowledged by the federal government, which financially supports efforts to address literacy rates, including many programs at public libraries. Libraries and other information centers remain an important component of this massive national educational effort (libraryinstruction.com)."
