NORWICH – Even if you are one of the many frequent and enthusiastic users of Guernsey Memorial Library, you may not be aware of the fact that the public libraries of New York fall under the auspices of the New York State Library and are ultimately governed by the New York State Department of Education.

As part of this arrangement, all public libraries must meet certain minimum standards, depending on various factors including the size of the community the library is chartered to serve. One of these standards requires each and every library to prepare a long-range plan as a formal document to:

• Provide information about the community and library to use in decision-making

• Clarify for board, staff and community the role of the library in the community

• Evaluate the usefulness and quality of specific services and activities

• Assist in preparing for change

• Establish priorities for the allocation of resources

• Document the need for funding

Libraries tend to work on long range planning cyclically. This year, Guernsey Memorial Library is working on a new long range plan, which we anticipate will encompass the next five years of library service. In order to give residents the opportunity to weigh in about library service needs, a community wide library survey is being undertaken over the upcoming weeks. The survey – which will be completely anonymous, approximately four pages long, and will take approximately ten minutes to complete – will be available in the library, through various community organizations, and via the library’s website.

Long story short, we need and appreciate your input. Since we know your time is valuable, we thought we would sweeten the pot and enter all of the survey respondents into a drawing for a brand-spanking new Kindle Fire HD tablet.Please call the library at 334-4034 or visit our web site at www.4cls.org/webpages/members/Norwich/NORWICH.HTML for more information.
