Ten Minutes to a Better Library!

We need your help! We are working on a long-range strategic plan to establish library priorities for the next 3-5 years, and we cannot do this properly without YOU, the residents of Holbrook.

Please assist us in planning Holbrook Public Library’s future by taking 10 minutes to fill out our survey. And, if you submit a completed survey by July 31, 2022, you will be entered into our raffle to win a $50 gift card to Connection Cafe or The Corner Grille.

We would love to hear from EVERY member of your household. Please take the survey online here or download it below to print out additional copies. Surveys will also be available at the Library, Town Hall, and Senior Center. Once we have collected and analyzed the results, we will present our findings to the Town and use this information to guide library planning for the next 5 years.

If you have further thoughts or anything else you would like to share, Library Director Kimberly Usselman welcomes additional comments at hpl@holbrook.ocln.org.

We appreciate your time and feedback very much. Thank you!
