Fitness Librarians Pump Up The Sacramento Book Scene

Libraries have always relied on the skills and talents of their employees, said Sacramento Public Library Director Rivkah K. Sass in a written statement. Were just doing it in ways wed never thought of before. The fitness programs help fill in the gap in library attendance by twenty-somethings, a demographic that Zaker said is rarely seen in libraries. When theyre kids they come for story time, when theyre teens they come to study, she said. When they have their own kids they come back for story time and when theyre seniors they spend time in the library. People in their 20s and 30s use the library, she added, but they dont spend time there. Cardholders ages 20-29 grew 10.3 percent between January 2013 and January 2014. They comprise 18.7 percent of the systems 642,837 current homepage cardholders.
