questionmarkblueThank you to all who participated in our Library Survey last month. A total of 213 responses were collected. Only 4 responses were from people who do not have a library card and 14 respondents had not been in the library in the past 12 months. When asked why they didn’t use the library, the largest response was that they buy their own materials. Respondents who do visit the library typically visit between 1 and 5 times per month. When asked what the impact would be if the public library closed, 86% reported a major impact on them and their family and 95% reported a major impact on the community as a whole. A total of 90% of the respondents reported that their use of the library has increased or stayed the same in the past five years.
