We are looking for feedback from our rural communities!

Help shape the future of local libraries. We recognize that for our patrons in rural communities, accessing library services presents unique challenges. This may be due to physical distance from a library branch, hours of operation for our rural branches, internet connectivity, or other issues. The Rural Community Engagement Survey is open now until May 1, 2024, for public input on library branch hours, the physical set-up of library spaces, collections, technology offerings, programs and activities, and more.

Take the survey now!
