What To Read and How To Read: The Social Infrastructure of Young People's Reading, Osage, Iowa, 1870 to 1900.
Pawley, Christine
Library Quarterly, v68 n3 p276-97 Jul 1998
Challenging the common image of reading as a solitary activity, this article describes the social settings in which young people participated in the print culture of a late 19th-century small midwestern town. Analysis of library borrowing records shows that both adults and youth read "low" fiction, shared titles, and engaged in a common culture, embracing males and females. (Author/AEF)
