Pew Internet » Libraries Released: June 22, 2012 Libraries, patrons, and e- books by Kathryn Zickuhr, Lee Rainie, Kristen Purcell, Mary Madden and Joanna Brenner Summary of findings 12% of readers of e- books borrowed an e- book from the library in the past year. But a majority of Americans do not know that this service is provided by their local library. Some 12% of Americans ages 16 and older who read e- books say they have borrowed an e- book from a library in the past year. Most e- book borrowers say libraries are very important to them and their families and they are heavy readers in all formats, including books they bought and books lent to them. E- book borrowers say they read an average ( the mean number) of 29 books in the past year, compared with 23 books for readers who do not borrow e- books from a library. Perhaps more striking, the median ( midpoint) figures for books reportedly read are 20 in the past year by e- book borrowers and 12 by non- borrowers. But most in the broader public, not just e- book readers, are generally not aware they can borrow e-books from libraries. We asked all those ages 16 and older if they know whether they can borrow e-books from their library and 62% said they did not know if their library offered that service. Some 22% say they know that their library does lend out e- books, and 14% say they know their library does not lend out e- books. These findings are striking because more than three- quarters of the nation’s public libraries lend e-books. 1 Libraries, patrons, and e- books | Pew Internet Libraries Page 1 of 6 http:// libraries. pewinternet. org/ 2012/ 06/ 22/ libraries- patrons- and- e- books/ 1/ 1/ 2013
