Library system seeks residents' input

CARROLL COUNTY -- The Carroll and Madison Library System is conducting a Library Patron Survey to determine how it can better fill local residents' needs.

The library staff wants to ask you why you use the library, what you would like to change, what do you like about your library.

How can you help make your libraries better? Just pick up a survey at your local library and fill it out right there or mail it back later to the address provided.

The same survey is available online as well. Just go to, click on "Take This Survey." Survey information is confidential. Names or contact information will not be asked.

"All of us are looking forward to reviewing the results," says Jean Elderwind, administrator of the Carroll and Madison Library System. "We offer many great library services in our two counties but all of us know we could do more or do things differently. Feedback from the community will be invaluable with our planning."

The Carroll and Madison Library System Library Patron Survey project is part of a year of strategic planning the libraries are involved with in 2013. Future activities will include town meetings in all of the libraries in the Carroll and Madison Library System (Berryville, Eureka Springs, Green Forest, Huntsville, Kingston, and St. Paul).

The survey takes 15 minutes to complete and the survey period will end on Saturday, July 27.

"The libraries in the Carroll and Madison Library System want a great turnout and your great ideas," said a press release. "Please help. Your opinion matters."

  • Thank you library board. Jean, you have done well. A community with a high quality library is a blessed community indeed.
