The San Antonio Public Library wants your opinion!

The Library is conducting a Community Needs Assessment to help us determine the course we should take for the next several years – what services we should offer, where new libraries are needed, how we can improve our services – anything and everything about the Library is under discussion.

Whether you use the Library a lot, a little, or not at all, we would like to hear from you. If you use the Library a lot, what can we do to make your Library experience even better? If you use the Library a little, what would help you to take advantage of more of our resources and services more often? And if you don’t use the Library at all, we would appreciate it if you would take some time to tell us why not.

We'd like to invite you to participate in a focus group to share your opinions about the Library. Focus groups will be held at the branch libraries listed below. Please join us to let us hear your thoughts. Refreshments will be provided.

For more information, please call Beth Graham at 207-2638, Roberta Sparks at 207-2635, or Jessica Ramos at 207-2632.

Don’t forget – your input is essential in helping us develop the San Antonio Public Library’s plan for the future! Thank you!

The Library Community Needs Assessment is funded by a donation from the San Antonio Public Library Foundation.

  1. Children of any age can join the library from babies to teens. To get full membership, someone over 18 (preferably your Mum or Dad or guardian) must sign the joining form and show the library 2 things that prove their name, address and signature. Many good online assignment help companies like http://www.tutorskingdom.com/dissertation/ also inspire the students to join the libraries.

  2. I suggest that you put the schedule of the Scholastic Caravan visits to your library branches on your web site. The Caravan visits at least two different branches per month. Thank you.

  3. Hi, Stew1 - the Scholastic Caravan visits should be listed in our calendar of events, accessible from the library home page www.mysapl.org.

    Anyone interested in finding out where the appearances are can sign up for e-mail notification.

    Thanks for sharing your opinion!
