Arkansas Library Survey 2021

by Ronald Russ (Administrator) on 31 Mar 2021 9:58 AM

The Arkansas Library Association is developing a new strategic plan to continue to guide our work for the next several years. We again are seeking input from all members of the state’s library community in understanding some of our current challenges and strengths. We have a short (eleven questions) survey at which will gather data and insights.
            We are trying to reach ALL members of the state’s library community: members and non-members of ArLA, library staff, and trustees. Your help in forwarding this to any group that may not have received it will help in gathering more data.
            Thank you for your help in crafting a better and stronger future for ArLA!
