Libraries have a lot to offer you and libraries need your support.  Join your library!  If you don't already have a library card, sign up today!  Your library is constantly adapting to serve your community. Open-site.org has prepared the following graphic showing what libraries do and the challenges we face.  Click on the image below to view in a larger format.

  A 2010 infographic by the non-profit Online Computer Library Center had a few other nice stats:

  • More libraries (12 000) provided free Wi-Fi than Starbucks (11 000)
  • Libraries lent out almost as many movies (2.1 million) as Netflix (2.1 million)
  • Libraries were more popular (1.4 billion visits) than movie theatres (1.3 billion tickets)
