Libraries a worthwhile public investment

Libraries a worthwhile public investment | LIbrary News & Reading Suggestions | Scoop.it

Libraries are essential, and the research proves it. We know from a recent longitudinal study from The Institute of Education at the University of London that "reading for pleasure was found to be more important for children's cognitive development between ages 10 and 16 than their parents' level of education. The combined effect on children's progress of reading books often, going to the library regularly and reading newspapers at 16 was four times greater than the advantage children gained from having a parent with a degree." In 2013, the library forecast 10,081,000 print and electronic items would be used by library cardholders - a tremendous investment in reading and learning across all age groups.
