Take the Statewide Library Survey

Your Voice Your Library button

This survey asks questions about who goes to which library and why. It should take 8-10 minutes to complete, and is completely anonymous.

Participants have the option to provide their email address and be entered into a drawing for an iPad Pro, to be awarded on September 15, 2017. Three iPads will be given: one to a patron who lives in the eastern part of the state, one in the central area, and one in western Massachusetts.

Why are we doing this?

For the MBLC to better support public libraries across the Commonwealth, we need to know who visits our libraries, why they visit them, and what users’ current and future expectations and desires are. The MBLC is undertaking a major study of cooperative borrowing and use patterns of Massachusetts public libraries, especially in-person visits by people that live in other Massachusetts cities and towns.

Ultimately, we want to get a good picture of who is going to which libraries for what reason - such as specific programs, facilities, proximity to a workplace, parking, etc. We think this information can help us in identifying regional patterns and developing service models for future sustainable library services in all communities, from the largest to the smallest.
