Port Jervis Free Library Community Assessment Survey

We need your help! Every 5 years libraries are required to conduct a Community Assessment Survey. The purpose of this survey is to get feedback on how the Port Jervis Free Library is meeting the needs of the community. Please take a few minutes to complete the Community Assessment Survey. Your responses will help us gauge the needs of our community and help us continue to improve library service in Port Jervis.

The survey will be available online through our library website at http://www.portjervislibrary.orgThere will also be paper copies available in the library at the main circulation desk, the children's room and the Hub computer center.  If you fill out a paper copy, please return it to the library.  We ask that only one survey per person be submitted.

You can access the online survey by clicking here.  Your responses to this survey are confidential.  Please feel comfortable in answering all questions honestly. Your feedback is extremely valuable.

Thank you for your insights and for your continued support of quality library service in our community!
