The newest Pew survey surprisingly finds that “62 percent of Generation Y respondents (young adults in the tech-loving group aged 18-30) said they visited a public library in the past year, with a steady decline in usage according to age. Some 57 percent of adults aged 43 to 52 said they visited a library in 2007, followed by 46 percent of adults aged 53 to 61; 42 percent of adults aged 62 to 71; and just 32 percent of adults over 72.”

A Reuters article on Yahoo News provides more details.
