We'd love to hear your views on what you borrow from the library, what you like to read, what you research or download from our website, and how easy it is to find what you are looking for. The results of the survey will help the library set priorities for stock purchases and service improvements. Please note that this survey is aimed at our adult readers and is only for individuals aged 16 years and over. If you are under 16 and would like to tell us something about the library, you can always fill in a comments card at any branch.
There are copies of the survey at each branch library, but if you would like to complete it online, follow this link:
It should take less than five minutes. The surveys are anonymous and you will not be asked for contact details. The survey will run until Saturday 13 July.
New Craft Club at Southsea Library
Do you sew, knit, crochet or enjoy any other craft that you would like to share with others? If so, we'd like to hear from you. We want to start a new Craft Club at Southsea Library and are looking for members. Please speak to Jodie to register your interest 023 9268 8999.
