New Gloucester Public Library Community Survey
The New Gloucester Public Library Staff and Trustees are engaging in a strategic planning process. In order to better serve the community, we would like to hear your thoughts. This survey can be anonymous, but you will have an opportunity to leave contact information at the end, if you like. The survey will take about 10-15 minutes to finish. You can skip questions that do not apply to you or that you do not wish to answer. Please complete the survey by December 1, 2022. One submission per person, please. If you have any questions, please contact us at newgloucesterlibrary@gmail.com.
