The Monroe County Public Library is hoping to get community feedback on what it can do to improve services.
Library Director Sara Laughlin says 3,000 surveys have been mailed out to a random sampling of county residents.
“It’s really part of our strategic plan. We’re asking people about their current use of the library, about their satisfaction with library services, and then we ask some very important questions about what directions, what priorities we should have for the future,” she says.
Laughlin says out of the 3,000 surveys sent out in 2008, about 700 of them were returned. She says the library steering committee will look at the surveys first, and make recommendations for the library’s long-term strategic plans.
