Now that the “new” library building addition is approaching its tenth anniversary, the library’s Building and Space Planning Committee is looking at how library users are currently using the spaces within the library in order to understand ways we may be able to repurpose or reconfigure space to better suit the needs of our users. If you’ve visited the Library to borrow materials, attend a program, use a meeting or study space or for some other purpose, we would like your opinions! Please take a few minutes to complete the survey and share your thoughts. Thank you for your participation!
