On March 19, 2012, METRO and ACRL/NY co-hosted a talk with Lee Rainie, Director of the Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project. In his remarks, Rainie discusses the Project's findings about how people gather, share, and create information on the internet and with their mobile phones. He also describes how libraries can fit into the social networks that are the main social structures for learning and caring in the 21st Century. Rainie also discusses the work that the Project is doing with a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation about the role of libraries in the lives of their patrons and communities.
