Where Should We Go? Help Plan the Library’s Future

The Central Arkansas Library System is undergoing a strategic planning process, and we’d like your input and comments.  As part of the process, we are conducting an online community survey.  We encourage all residents – whether or not you use the Library regularly – to complete the survey.

The community survey is available online through December 29th.  Paper, hard copies of the survey will also be available at Library facilities.  The short survey only takes about 10 minutes to complete.  It includes an open-ended comment section, and all suggestions for the future directions of the Library are encouraged.

The survey is being conducted by the independent, Library Strategies Consulting Group, and all individual responses will be confidential. Only aggregate responses will be reported to the Library Board and administration.

The community survey, along with other Library data and trends, and input from the staff, Board and other key stakeholders, will form the basis for the strategic plan.  The plan is expected to be completed and approved in the first quarter of next year.
