14% of survey complete.

Dear Alamance County Community Members,

As Phase 1 of Alamance County Public Library’s LSTA funded strategic planning project a comprehensive community needs assessment was conducted over a seven-month period from July 2016 to January 2017. A total of 672 people participated across a wide variety of data collection methods including interviews (n=30), focus groups with the community and staff (n=7, 37 participants), community forums (n=3, 20 participants), one site visit to Hunt Library, and three online surveys (community library priorities n=452, staff n=45, and information and entertainment preferences n=88). Interview participants included the County Manager, a County Commissioner, Mayor of Burlington, City Manager of Burlington, City Manager of Graham, City Manager of Mebane, President of the Burlington Chamber of Commerce, the United Way, Lab Corps, Friends of the Library, Impact Alamance, the Housing Authority, ELON, and many other members of the community.

Based on the results of the needs assessment, we have worked extremely hard to craft an innovative and ambitious vision of the future of your library services.

We would like your feedback on our Alamance Public Library System's draft 2017-2022 plan by no later than Mon. 7/31.
