The Public Library Funding and Technology Access Study from ALA’s Office for Research and Statistics just released their 2009-10 statistics.Â Included in this report wasÂ U.S. public libraries providing access to ebooks – which was 65.9%
A sampling of the % of Libraries Providing E-Books In:
- New Yorkâ€“71%
Note: Since e-books are listed in the Internet category weâ€™re assuming these are books downloaded off the Internet from services like OverDrive, Safari, NetLibrary, Books 24Ã—7, ebrary, and others. Weâ€™re trying to find out how these numbers and ones to come will count books downloaded once to a Kindle, iPad, nook, or other device and then loaned to many users.
Thanks to Resource Shelf for this information.
