Milford Public Library

 

IMAGINE THE POSSIBILITIES....

The Milford Public Library is embarking on a 3 year Strategic Plan and would greatly appreciate your input. The thoughts and preferences of the Milford community are central to shaping the future of our community’s Library. We ask for your support and participation in a community survey (link below).

The survey takes between 10 and 15 minutes to complete.

We value your perspective and hope that you will make an effort to answer every question to the best of your ability. All responses will be kept anonymous. 

Please respond online by February 1, 2018

If you have any questions about the survey or the Strategic Planning process, please feel free to contact library planning consultant Maxine Bleiweis at maxine@maxinebleiweis.com.
