Since 2019, the Freckle Project has been asking a key question of American readers: "Where did you get that book". Through a series of consumer-facing surveys, project lead Tim Coates has been able to track the habits of reading - and the evolution of format changes - before, during, and after the COVID pandemic. Public libraries are deeply impacted by changes in reading habits, format preferences, and choices about where and how people acquire their next book, ebook, or audio book. The EveryLibrary Institute has been supporting the research behind the semi-annual consumer surveys and is proud to help make this research more accessible to library leaders.
