Americans prefer printed books over audio or e-books

That’s according to a new Gallup poll. Nearly three fourths of the people surveyed said they prefer to read books in print. Over half of young adults surveyed read between one and ten books a year. Experts say the results mean the decline of paper books isn’t happening as quickly as they anticipated.

The Fayetteville Public Library is adding lynda.com to its list of digital offerings. Library card holders can access tutorials using the website. There are video courses on different professional topics, like becoming a small business owner, or a photographer. The library says you have to use the site on a computer, because the mobile app doesn’t support library access.

In December the library added access to online movies, tv shows, music, audiobooks, e-books and comic books. Hoopla Digital and Freegal Music were two new services added to the library. Both allow folks to check out materials at any time, from any location, with a valid library card.
