There are more public libraries than McDonald’s in the U.S. – a total of 16,417 including branches.
Hope this is true!!!
It totally is! According to Time magazine there were less than 16,000 McDonalds in the US last year. Also according to the American Library Association if you include school, specialty, and government libraries in addition to public libraries (which the above figure represents) there are actually over 119,000 libraries in the US.
hopefully one day the libraries will beat the starbucks 😀
