A new quarterly trending survey, LJ Patron Profiles focuses on the behavior and preferences of United States (U.S.) public library users and is the first survey to target library media consumers in the context of all consumers. Did you know that 50% of all library users go on to purchase books (in print and digital formats) by the authors they first discovered in the library? Learn more about the Library Power Patrons and their reading and buying behaviors.
