Let Us Know What You Think…
The Abilene Public Library is conducting a survey to determine community and patron needs. The goal of the one-page survey is to determine what people like about the library, what kind of books are needed, what services are not being provided, what would make the facility more conducive to greater patron usage, and how to improve service.
The survey can be filled out on line by clicking here or a paper survey is available at the circulation desk in the adult or children’s department.
“It is hoped that people of all ages will provide feedback on how and why they use the library,” explained library associate director Kara Cromwell. She went on to say that results of the survey will help determine future budget priorities and facility use plans.
Director Judy Burgess stated “Trends in libraries are changing as ereaders become more popular and the internet is used for information gathering rather than encyclopedias so we need a long term plan that addresses new trends but maintains services patrons want and need today.”
Results of the survey will be used by the Library Board of Trustees and staff to create a five year plan. Results of the survey will be available in September.
