Interesting library facts!

I’ve been searching around the Internet to put interesting library facts in this blog.

Did you know that according to the American Library Association, 58% of adults in the United States have a library card or that the largest overdue fine for a library book was $345.14? This is why it’s so important to keep track of when a book is due or be careful to not lose library materials. (Source).

Another interesting fact is that Georgian Era British librarians hated the novel and wanted to ban it from the proto-Modern public library! I wonder why that was and will probably do more research to find out. (Source).

Thirdly, Superman’s biological mother was librarian and archivist! (Source)! See more librarians in comic books here.

What other library facts do you know? Please share them in the comments!
