There are more public libraries than McDonald's - a total of 15.872 including branches. Americans spend $330 billion a year on legalized gambling - enough to fund public libraries for 75 years. Americans make 3,5 billion visits to school-, public- and college libraries each year. The nation's reference librarians answer 295 million questions annually. Federal spending on libraries totals only 57 cents per person - about the cost of a pack of gum. Americans spend nine times as much on home video games ($1,5 billion) as they do on school materials for their children." (Ur Annons publicerad av ALA,
