Perspectives: The Role of Libraries

That’s resulted in budget cuts for many libraries across the United States. But a new study from the Pew Research Center says Millennials are using libraries more than any other generation. And the study says the reason for that may be that libraries are so much more than the big buildings full of dusty books they tend to be associated with.
