From March 17 to April 4, the Meadville Public Library will be conducting a survey on technology usage and how the Library can best serve the population. You can take the survey online or in a written format. The producers of the survey estimate that it should take between 10-15 minutes for you to complete. While you do not have to answer every question, the more questions you answer the fuller our understanding of your needs will be.
