    With what most major publishers went to?

    But there are more than 3000 books published every day. Someone’s reading out there. Just not as much from the big outfits that push formula books and lowest common denominator.

    I hope people will still read. I prefer it because I can visualize the characters myself.

    I still read books and use our library all the time. But if I ever get an e-reader I will use it as well. Our library has e-books available.

    Last week I was studying at our public library. The kids started coming for programs just like Ellie is talking about. It got so loud it forced me to leave.

    And I am at the library twice a week. Yes people still take out a lot of books, it has not slacked down at all.
    I always take out DVD’s of TV shows. I currently have out Fringe (season 4) Walking Dead (season 2) and Homeland.

    Lots of people work for libraries who are not accredited librarians…in fact most aren’t.

    20 years ago I would read several books a week, now not so much- more into magazines and online news, etc. My hubby does still read many books, plus he has an ereader. My kids a few books a month.

    I think many libraries have these programs to encourage people, especially children, to see the libraries as normal, fun places which welcome everyone, rather than silent sanctums for swots. The idea is that they will thus be encouraged to pick up books and read. I don’t know if it works.
