Help Create Your Public Library’s Vision!

Over the next several months, libraries across southeastern Minnesota, including La Crescent Public Library, are taking part in a broad-based community needs assessment. The intent is to learn more about what our residents value, expect, and need from library service. Among other data gathering, we are conducting an online survey touching on collections, services, and – above all – your aspirations for our community and its library over the years to come.


The survey will be available through May 31st and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. To participate, visit www.surveymonkey.com/r/NM7K3S5. Thank you so much for your input! Libraries are for everyone!
