Though one of the world’s smaller nations, Denmark has more books in its public libraries than all but eight nations on earth. And the people of Denmark use their public libraries more than any other people in the world.
The population of Denmark is only about 5 million. But in an average year, Danes borrow close to 85 million books from their libraries. That’s an average of 17 books a year for each person.
In the United States, the average person borrows about 4 books a year!
