Americans go to school, public and academic libraries more than three times as frequently as they go to the movies.

There are more public libraries than Starbucks in the U.S.total of 17,566 including branches. 

Nearly 100% of public libraries provide WiFi and have no-fee access to computers. 

In 2013, there were 1.5 billion in-person visits to public libraries across the U.S., the equivalent of more than 4 million visits each day. That’s 2,854 per minute.
