GREENWICH, Conn. -- Greenwich Library is conducting a 2015 Community Survey to examine the community’s views about library services and priorities.
This anonymous survey is a continuation of Greenwich Library’s five-year strategic plan – My Library: Connecting our Community -- launched in 2012.
The survey is available via the library’s website, www.greenwichlibrary.org .
“Our goal in conducting this survey is to learn more about the community’s preferences in programming and resources,” said Haley Elmlinger, president of Greenwich Library’s Board of Trustees. “Completing the survey takes only a few minutes, but its impact as the voice of our community will resonate for years to come.”
The survey is available through Monday, Oct. 12, in English, Spanish and Japanese.
Although participants are encouraged to complete the survey online, paper copies will be available at all three Library locations.
Current users and non-users, as well as individuals of all ages, are encouraged to complete the survey. Each member of the family can participate, and the survey is easily accessed on mobile devices. Students in grades 6 to 12 and their parents are highly encouraged to participate, as the library is considering a number of initiatives to further engage this age group.
The survey was designed by a committee of library staff and trustees in consultation with Berk Associates, a Seattle-based consulting firm. It focuses on current use, programming preferences, digital collections, technology support, possible use of space, and “what ifs” regarding potential future services. The library also collaborated with Berk Associates on the 2011 Community Survey.
Greenwich Library Director Barbara Ormerod-Glynn said the staff will use the survey results to inform critical choices about collections, programs and services.
"We’ve made tremendous progress in implementing the Strategic Plan thus far," she said. "The results of this survey will help us to continue to meet the changing needs and interests of Greenwich residents with an emphasis on partnerships, building community and access to technology.”
