You may have noticed a new link on the library's home page today, a link that reads, "Please take a few minutes to complete our community survey." That link will take you to a quick and easy online survey - just read and click to fill in your answers.
Why a survey? The Des Plaines Public Library Board of Trustees, Library Director Sandra Norlin and the library staff are about to begin the strategic planning process for the next 3 years. We want to be certain that our library's collections and services meet the needs of our community residents. We want to be certain that we draft a strategic plan that gives you, our patrons, top priority. So take a moment to respond. Let us know how we compare to other community services. Tell us what you think the role of a 21st century public library should be. We're very proud to serve the Des Plaines community (as well as surrounding suburbs that use our library) and want to do our best for you. To take the survey, just click here. Or use the link from the library home page, www.dppl.org. Comments or questions about the survey itself? Please post them here and we'll answer you right away. Thanks and have a fun but safe Labor Day weekend. REMINDER: the Library is closed Sunday, September 2 and Monday, September 3 in observance of Labor Day.
