Library seeks community feedback
The next few years look exciting for Mesa County Libraries — with a modern and expanded central branch opening this spring — and officials are in the process of seeking citizens’ input to shape the library system’s future.
All county residents, whether they use the library or not, are encouraged to hop online and spend a few minutes taking a detailed survey. A link on the website www.mesacounty libraries.org will get you to the Community Feedback Survey.
Survey responses and results are confidential and will be used to create a new strategic plan for the library system. The last strategic plan was completed four years ago, library spokesman Bob Kretschman said.
“A key part of any strategic plan is to get input from the community about what they’d like to see in their library for the next three years,” Kretschman said.
Survey questions focus on what people like about the library, what they don’t like and what they would like to see more of in their local branches. The survey also tries to get information about how often certain services are used by residents, and what their likelihood of using specific offerings is.
If an interested resident doesn’t have access to the survey online, paper versions — in both English and Spanish — are available at library locations across the county. The survey is open until Thursday.
