Endling: The Last,
by Katherine Applegate
"Americans went to the library an average of 10.5 times in 2019, beating out trips to movie theaters, sporting events, national parks, museums, and zoos. According to a new Gallup poll, libraries were almost twice as popular as movie theaters and ten times as popular as zoos."
