The Library Board of Trustees has created a plan for the future based on community feedback after the March 2016 failed referendum. Please take a few moments to read about the revised plan and then take our 30-second survey. Before the Board decides in January whether or not to put forth a question on the April 4, 2017 ballot, they would like your feedback. Read about the Library’s future plans first, then take the survey by clicking on the picture. Thank you! **Survey closes at 5:00 pm Wednesday, December 14th.
