How many libraries are in the U.S.?

  • 7,500
  • 119,500 correct

    There are an estimated 119,487 libraries of all kinds in the United States today. We say "estimated" because there is no one going around and counting them annually. But do you know what people are counting? Other (rich) people. There are 145,000 U.S. households worth $25 million or more. We bet most of them are hitting up those libraries every once in a while.
