• Libraries enjoy a 94% approval rating in the United States (Pew Internet Study, 2013).
• A 2012 study from LibraryRenewal.org, however, found that only 6% of library cardholders in the study have ever even tried to check out an e-book.
We'll explore what this means, and the implications for publishers and librarians.
