PLANO (WBAP/KLIF News) — When you think of the public library, you usually think of mothers reading to toddlers or kids on field trips, right? Now, a new study shows your first thought might be wrong.

Last week, a study published by the Pew Research Center showed 53% of Millennials (between ages 18 and 35) said they’d visited a public library within the past year. That compares with only 45% of Gen Xers (aged 36 to 51) and 43% of Baby Boomers (52-70.)

So, what’s drawing the high-tech generation to an historically low-tech destination? Dave & Amy talked with Rachel Hadidi, an Outreach Librarian with the Plano Public Library to find out.
