Tell us your thoughts about your local Okanagan Regional Library branch

The Okanagan Regional Library is going through some changes. This short survey is designed to capture public feedback on your local public library and what services you value most. It starts off with some space for general comments, then asks more specific questions about aspects of our library service. All questions are optional and the survey usually takes less than 10 minutes to fill out.   http://fluidsurveys.com/surveys/orl/what-the-library-means-to-me/
