Update: This is the final week to fill out the survey. Please take 10 minutes and fill it out today. Your feedback is extremely valuable.

By working together, we at the ALA Washington Office believe the library community can increase overall support for libraries and deliver our messages more effectively.

But we need your help by taking our survey.  We’re eager to know what concerns your library most, what stories you may have to share and, most importantly, what you need to influence your community and beyond more effectively.  We’ve partnered with long-time ALA friend Stephanie Vance, author of The Influence Game, to help craft the specific resources you need to boost your efforts to convince others of the benefits of investing in library services.

When we say we want your opinion, we mean it.  Toolkits, templates, trainings and technical assistance aren’t helpful if they aren’t targeted toward your specific interests and needs.  We want to know about the policy and funding issues that interest you, any barriers you may face and the tactics and strategies you believe would be most effective in helping you move forward.  To help us understand all this better, please complete our survey. It should take no more than 10 minutes.

Our deadline for responses is September 16, 2013.  Let’s work together to make a difference!

Note: Please click through to the next page of the survey after you have completed the first. There are 5 pages.
