Value of libraries
This highly informative infographic put together by Masters in Education and ObizMedia, is analyzing the role of a library and a librarian in our life.
Each day in US libraries more items are circulated than on Amazon. Another fact from US: public library cardholders outnumber registered Amazon customers by 5 to 1.
