Ever wonder where facts like these come from? In reference intern training we looked at the U.S. Census website and I found a section called Facts for Features, which are lists of statistics related to certain holidays or events. On the site you can see previous Facts for Features and download them in PDF form. Did you know there was an “Unmarried and Single Americans week”? Me neither. The fun facts could be just the thing for a library newsletter!

Check it all out here.
