Most Literate Cities 2007

The America's Most Literate Cities study for 2007 has just been posted online and it is interesting to note that library resources are one of the six key indicators. The study has been conducted every year since 2003 by Dr. John W. Miller, President of Central Connecticut State University. It ranks the 69 largest cities (population of 250,000 and above) and focuses on six key indicators: bookstores, library resources, periodical publishing resources, educational attainment, and Internet resources.

The top ten most literate cities are:
  • Minneapolis, MN
  • Seattle, WA
  • St. Paul, MN
  • Denver, CO
  • Washington, DC
  • St. Louis, MO
  • San Francisco, CA
  • Atlanta, GA
  • Pittsburgh, PA
  • Boston, MA
