We want to hear from you!

Hunt Library
We’re conducting a survey  to help us get a clear understanding of how Hunt Library’s patrons and the community use the library and what is most important to you. Your responses will assist us in formulating the library’s strategic direction for the future.
Earlier this year, we conducted several focus groups with frequent library patrons as well as members of the community who do not regularly use the library. The focus groups, which included people of varying ages, interests, and both full and part time residents, helped us develop a series of questions that focus on how the library currently serves the community and asks for your thoughts about priorities and new directions the library might consider.
The survey only takes about 10 minutes to complete. You may complete it online here  (Hunt Library Survey) or on the library’s computers or you can complete it on hard copy at the library.
Thanks for your help! Your feedback is very important to us and will help us plan for the future of the Hunt Library.
