Description
This vital book reaffirms librarians'enthusiasm for books and readers in the midst of the evolution of libraries-from reading centers to information centers where librarians are now Web masters, information scientists, and media experts. Readers, Reading, and Librarians explores the future of the book as a medium. With nearly two hundred open-ended interviews with readers who read for pleasure, this book looks at how and why they choose or reject certain books. Readers, Reading, and Librarians examines: reasons for the current decline in pleasure reading the need for librarians to sponsor book groups the current focus on "electronic wonders" balancing the missions of acting as an advisory service for readers and maintaining your library's technological services and much more!
