Unfortunately libraries are in a bind: to attract patrons they must cater to that demographic's tastes. But not all the materials are necessarily educational or beneficial (i.e. job training, literacy). Libraries are a little bit like the MOOCs -- the ones who benefit from them are self-learners, anyway. The library, like the MOOC, is merely an extension of their values or private lives.
