Patrons often shun author programs in favor of knitting classes, business improvement courses, and movie nights.

Instead of checking out books, patrons use library meeting space for neighborhood groups, conduct online research on public computers connected to the Internet, or learn a new skill. They seek programs that provide the most personal value, rendering the typical author program stale.
