Teens Really Do Read!

Posted by blatantbibliophiles on October 28, 2007


Ms. Hamilton has a great post on The Unquiet Library blog about teens who read. Did you know that 70% of teens use their school library more than once a month, and 31% use the public library more than ten times a year, according to a survey of over 1,200 teens? Seventy-eight percent of regular library users borrow materials for personal use, not just school use. Teen book sales increased twenty-three percent from 1999 to 2005. Check out The Unquiet Library post for full details, and visit The Unquiet Library for all our great books and materials. And bring a friend to the next Blatant Bibliophiles meeting!
