CHICAGO — Maureen Sullivan, president of the American Library Association (ALA), submitted the following statement regarding the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project report, “Library Services in the Digital Age,” that was released today.
As you may know, the ALA Library has several pages in its section of the ALA website called “ALA Library Fact Sheets,” which answer fairly common questions about libraries, with sources noted.
