1) Long Overdue: A Fresh Look at Public Attitudes About Libraries in the 21st Century found that:
  • libraries hold high credibility in their communities
  • the public values both traditional and 21st century services
  • people who are civiclly engaged are very pro-library, but not worried about library's competition for funding
  • leaders see libraries as poised to solve problems, but vulnerable
  • most people reject cutting library services
