How Australian libraries support the Australian book industry

Australian libraries provide valuable support for Australian authors and publishers in many ways. Mllions of dollars worth of books and ebooks are bought every year.  Authors are introduced to book buyers  People who borrow books also buy them. People discover and rediscover the joy of reading, creating new audiences.  Author talks in libraries are a useful source of income for writers and a good way to promote their work.
