USA: But, Nobody Uses Libraries Anymore!! Except more people visit their library than attend the NFL, NHL, NBA, Nascar, or the movie theater COMBINED.

But, Nobody Uses Libraries Anymore!! Except more people visit their library than attend the NFL, NHL, NBA, Nascar, or the movie theater COMBINED. https://www.libraries2020.org/but_nobody_uses_libraries_anymore   One of the things we always hear while campaigning for libraries is that nobody uses libraries anymore. In fact, if we had a $1 for every time we heard this phrase, we wouldn’t need to ask you for donations. But what’s so frustrating about this common response is how completely unfounded it is. There is simply no basis for believing that nobody uses libraries anymore. The truth is that most of the general public have a library card and use their public libraries. We’re working to educate American voters about the value and importance of libraries in 2020. Every $10 we raise helps us reach 1,000 more voters with information like this. But you can help us fight against this common misconception by simply clicking to tweet these facts below or sharing this entire post on Facebook. Did you know that almost 100 million more people visit their libraries (1.3 billion) each year than see a movie at the theater (1.2 billion)?
