Help Us Help You

MAPL serves the information needs of our communities: Adams Township, Middlesex Township, Valencia Borough, and Mars Borough. Because our community is growing expeditiously, periodically we will ask you for your feedback to better assess our effectiveness to serve you.  We ask this to better understand your needs of library products, services and experiences.


MAPL is focused on the future. We are client-centered and want to know how you use the library, what you want to see improved, and what you feel is missing from our services.  We want your input to design library services that meet the contemporary demands of our growing neighborhoods. Your answers will help direct future actions the Library Board of Trustees can take to ensure with greater confidence that it meets the needs of the communities the Library serves.


We want your ideas and interests.  Please take the time to answer our brief survey.  Thank you for your help.
