Library Needs Assessment Update

Post Date:04/21/2020

The Village of Pinehurst is in the process of assessing our community’s need for library services. As part of that process, in February 2020 the Village asked residents to provide feedback on what our community needs from its library. The results of the online survey have been posted on the Engage Pinehurst site, along with a summary.

The online survey results were segmented in the following ways to better understand the library needs of different types of residents:

May 15-June 15: ETC Institute, the Village’s annual Resident Survey provider, will mail a second library needs assessment survey to a representative sample of 400 Pinehurst households to test the findings of the preliminary library needs assessment.

July 14: LibraryIQ will present the final report of their findings and recommendations to the Village Council at their 4:30pm meeting.
