We want to hear from you! example thumbnail

The Baldwin Library is planning for the future! The Library is in the process of developing a new strategic plan to ensure that it is supporting the needs of the Baldwin Community. This survey is a part of that effort.

The survey has 5 questions and will take approximately five to seven minutes to complete. All survey participants will be entered into a drawing to win a McCormick and Schmick’s gift card or a pair of movie tickets. There will be multiple winners. Prizes will be awarded August 31.

Participants also have the option of remaining anonymous, however if you choose this option, you will not be eligible for the drawing.

Please help us make YOUR Library the best that it can be!    TAKE THE SURVEY TODAY!

Thank you
