U.S. Department of Education Institute of Education Sciences National Center for Education Statistics offers a report presenting data on programs for adults in public library outlets. NCES used its Fast Response Survey System (FRSS) to collect data from public library outlets in fall 2000 about three areas of interest for adult programming: adult literacy programs, programs for adult lifelong learning, and Internet access for adult independent use. Offered as a free downloadable PDF file.
