Public librarians often know their communities firsthand and are often the first to recognize a pressing local need, simply because they interact on a daily basis with patrons from all walks of life.  This can put libraries and librarians in the best position not only to bring local issues to local governments and social agencies, but also to partner with local governments and agencies to address the needs of a community.  Fill out our on-line survey, or drop by the library to fill out a paper survey.  Let us know what you need.
