Rod Library is looking to foster a culture of excellence in providing library service and to better understand user perceptions of library service quality. This is YOUR opportunity to tell us how well we are doing, whether you come to the library or use our resources online, and to give us insight into what users like you expect from Rod Library.
Starting April 15th, the library will be running a survey to gather input from you! Give us 3-5 minutes of your time and we'll give you a chance to win an iPad mini, in addition to other great prizes. The survey ends on Friday, May 3rd at 5pm.
We get input to create an even better Rod Library, and you get a chance at an iPad mini. We all win!
