Tell the Library what resources you value most, and what services could be improved by completing a survey available Wednesday, now through Friday, May 25, 2018. Visit the Library’s website here to access the survey online, or visit your local branch to complete a paper copy. The survey is available in English, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Mandarin, Somali, Vietnamese, Tagalog and Korean. Survey responses will help guide the Library’s service planning and decision-making.
It’s been nearly eight years since the Library has surveyed Seattle residents to see how current operations align with public needs and expectations. Information from the 2010 Library survey led to enhancements in the collection of books and materials, more computer technology, expanded Library hours and more.
“A lot has changed in our community since 2010, and it is important to ask residents if our services and resources are addressing their needs,” said Chief Librarian Marcellus Turner. Turner said in addition to offering an expansive print and digital collection, the Library offers nearly 10,000 annual educational classes, cultural programs and services, including tax help, health care enrollment, homework tutoring, citizenship preparation, Wi-Fi hotspot lending to tent cities, social service referrals and more.
