Hi Patricia, I enjoyed reading your post, however I didnt find a small conuter argument, to show the other “side” of the argument. You have clearly researched your topic quite in depth and i commend you on that. It has a strong focus on recreational use of libraries but does not touch too much broadly as in how libraries are used overall , rather this is an argument about recreational reading and the librarys role. Im just wondering whether in your opinion opr argument whether we have time to “save or capture” the next generation into reading. As studies have shown attention spans getting shorter and people want information quicker. And also genres, are people more inclined to go with Books that are more like TV shows with lots of gore and that of the like, can we as Information Professionals retain a readership into the future?
