UK Children’s Library Attendance Is Down

From the Bookseller post:

According to a new report from the UK’s Department for Culture, Media and Sport, the number of children visiting libraries in the country has fallen to 70 percent. This is a seven-percent decrease from the five-year period measured before. Said Sue Wilkinson, chief executive of The Reading Agency: “This report raises a lot of questions about the value people find in libraries and we need to keep on encouraging parents and carers to take children to visit the library.”
