Survey Being Conducted to Help Refresh the POWER Library Website!
The POWER Library website was created in 2013. While it has done well to stand the test of time, the addition of services, updated navigation trends, etc., are prompting us to obtain feedback from users of all types as the first step in refreshing the POWER Library website.

To that end, we are conducting a survey that includes prominently placed invitations throughout the POWER Library. The survey will be available until May 31.

We want feedback from everyone who works or volunteers in a library too! Please select the survey link below to provide us with your opinion!
