Children's Books & Library Borrowing

No surprises here, but all the same...

According to the Public Lending Right, children borrowing books from the library has been on the rise for the past six years with almost 80% of 5 to 10 year olds regularly visiting their local library.

Following concerns that the future of public libraries is looking bleak, these statistics reveal that there's still a huge number of people borrowing books from libraries - and that it's children's books that they're reading most.

This list comes after the Office for National Statistics found that 69 million children's books were borrowed during 2009, compared with 63 million four years ago.
