STAMFORD, CT - In an effort to determine how best to allocate Library resources, The Ferguson Library will conduct a survey to measure how Stamford residents use the library and what services are most important to them. The information will help guide the Library in developing a new strategic plan.
The two-week survey, which will run May 7 – 21, will be available through the Library’s website, www.fergusonlibrary.org. There will also be limited paper copies. The questionnaire will be translated into Spanish, Russian and Creole, and should take about ten minutes to complete. Questions include queries on library usage, how satisfied patrons are with library programs and services, and which resources are most important to them. There are also a series of questions for non-users to help us better identify which services potential library users want.
The survey will help The Ferguson set spending priorities, and help guide decisions on materials, programming, hours and other library operations.
The survey is being conducted by Berk Consulting, a Seattle-based company that recently completed a survey for the Greenwich Library. The Friends of The Ferguson Library is funding the project.
