The do it yourself mentality is increasing according to the New York Times.

Notice this correlates to increase library use in

  1. Boston
  2. Seattle
  3. My home Madison
  4. And, of course, The United States of America

Sure, correlation does not equal causation. . .but, damn it’s nice to see that people are wanting to use information again. Too bad funding doesn’t appear to correlate to increased library use.
