The Oskaloosa Public Library is in the process of developing a five-year Strategic Plan, aiming at providing the very best services to our community.  A critical component of the process is gathering information and ideas from the community to establish and create a focused direction for the Library.

The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete.  The survey will be available on-line or by paper copy until March 31, 2021.   Paper copies of the survey are available for pick up at the front doors of the Library, and can be returned (in the provided envelope) in the outside book drop.

The Oskaloosa Public Library Staff and Library Board of Trustees THANK YOU for taking the time to fill out this survey and provide valuable feedback for Your Library’s Strategic Plan.
