COMMUNITY SURVEY: Lavender Library, Archives, and Cultural Exchange (LLACE)

Hello Friends of LLACE!
It is time again for us to gather feedback about our organization and how we're responding to community needs. Your responses to this survey will guide us as we look to our future and continue to find our place in the ever-changing LGBTQIA landscape. In exchange for participating in this survey, you'll have a chance to enter a drawing for cool prizes including books, a DVD copy of Moonlight (2016), a free LLACE membership, or a $5 Starbucks gift card. Open for responses until drawing on June 3, 2017. 

Thank you for your feedback; it is much appreciated!

LLACE was founded in 1998 as a research and information institution for Sacramento's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA) community. We aim to promote the understanding and celebration of sexual orientation and gender diversity. We also collect and preserve the community's history for future generations. Our lending library and archive house LGBTQIA books and magazines, various media, and archival materials. We are open to the public and serve patrons in the greater Sacramento Valley and Northern California.

Our current mission statement reads:

The Lavender Library collects, maintains, preserves, and circulates materials to patrons in a safe and friendly environment. The library promotes the understanding to sexual diversity, and collects and preserves the community's history, writing, and memorabilia, by documenting for future generations the people, places, and events of Sacramento through its archival program.

As of now, how do you think we’re doing to meet these goals? In addition to what you have shared above, do you have any other comments or feedback on our goals as they are outlined here?
