Finding common ground: a survey of young adults’ perceptions of the public library

by Pierce, Kathleen M.

Abstract (Summary)
Young adults are an under-served portion of public library patrons. Despite the help that they could be offering this age group, public libraries are not appealing places for young adults. This research paper details the results of a survey administered to high school juniors in central North Carolina that attempts to answer the question of how public libraries can better serve young adults, both in terms of materials and programs offered, and also in terms of a comfortable physical space that teens will enjoy.
