Study Finds Americans Are Reading Less

Americans are reading a lot less according to a recent report by the National Endowment for the Arts.

The report found a growing number of Americans were not even reading one book per year, but some in Eastern Kentucky say that is not what they're seeing in the community. Officials with the Laurel County Library say people are reading more now then ever before.

"At any given time thirty percent of our book collection is out, so I'm very confused about the study," said Lori Acton with the Laurel County Public Library.

Besides Laurel County, in Clay County, school board officials site their annual reading celebration summit as one reason why more people are reading.
