About the book:

This vital book reaffirms librariansenthusiasm 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!
