We are doing some strategic planning to make sure we continue to meet community needs. To that end, we have a brief survey we would like you to fill out. Please contribute if you use the library or if you don’t use the library. We are interested in hearing from all adults in Lonsdale and the surrounding area. Tell your friends!
We wouldn’t ask you to do this for free. We will be having a drawing for a $50 gift certificate to Mackenthun’s Fine Foods.
If you prefer a physical survey, you can pick one up at the library or City Hall. Please complete or return by August 3rd.
