Every day 300,000 Americans get job-seeking help at their public library. There are more Wi-Fi hotspots at public libraries (12,000) than at Barnes & Noble and Borders book stores combined. Every month 2.8 million business owners and employees use resources at public libraries to support their small businesses.
