We Want Your Opinion!

We Want Your Opinion!

Take our library survey:

Does your opinion count? It certainly does to the staff of the Butler Public Library, Friends of the Library, and the Library Board! The Friends and the Board are currently conducting a survey of current and future patrons. What services are most valuable to you? If you do use the library, what do you use it for? What kinds of programs and special events would you like to see – and help with – in future months?

Your opinions can be shared with the staff at the Library at any time, of course. Until October 20th, you can also share your thoughts via an on-line survey. Please use the following link to send us your valuable opinion and thoughts about our public library. It is a short survey, but the results are very important to all of us.
