Poland: New Statistics Show More Items Being Borrowed From Public Libraries

From Radio:

…nationwide figures recently released by the Ministry of Culture and the National Library [in Polish] show that Poles borrowed nearly 1.5 million more publications in 2012 than in the previous year.

This marked a U-turn in the nearly decade-long trend of declining book rental figures and library membership rates.
