Over the next two weeks Council is surveying the community about library use and how libraries are evolving in the future. They are especially interested in the voices of our rural libraries (i.e. us!) so knowing many of you are often visitors to the library, it will be really helpful if you could add your input to the survey. There are a few paper copies at the library too,  but if you have the time to fill this out online, it’s probably the easiest and fastest way to get your info in to everyone.
