Information Comes in Many Forms

We all have heard that Smart phones are the latest and greatest trend. There is an increase in the number of people who own Smart phones.  According to the Pew, Internet, and American Life Project study, which was  released in July 2011, 35% of adults own a smart phone with the numbers of ownership being slightly higher at 44% for African-Americans and Latinos. Of those owners, 68% said that they used their phone everyday to go online and 87% access email from their phone. Another study by Morgan Stanley, predicts that more people will access the Internet from a mobile device in 2015 than do from a desk top computer.  

Traditionally, libraries were an ordered collection of books. Today, libraries have become places of unrestricted access to information existing in many formats. Libraries will continue to offer books and services designed to meet the needs of our patrons. Libraries are expanding beyond its walls.
