Dorothy Alling Memorial Library, your home for lifelong learning
Please help us evaluate and improve our services by taking our library survey. This survey is a follow up to our strategic plan survey last year. It is confidential and all questions are optional, so you are free to skip any questions that you do not want to answer or that do not apply to you. We expect the survey to take about 10 minutes. You must be at least 14 years old to participate. Thank you so much for your support!
