Parents, Children, Libraries, and Reading

Parents of minor children have a special relationship with libraries. Most believe libraries are very important for their children and provide extra resources that are not
available at home. Parents are also more likely than other adults to use libraries for
services ranging from book borrowing to accessing the internet to attending classes and events – and mothers are considerably more engaged with libraries than fathers.
 This is according to a recent Pew Internet Report by Carolyn Miller, Research Consultant, Pew Internet Project; Kathryn Zickuhr, Research Analyst, Pew Internet Project; Lee Rainie, Director, Pew Internet Project; and Kristen Purcell, Associate Director for Research, Pew Internet Project.
