MBLC Announces Statewide Patron Survey

to better understand who uses Massachusetts public libraries, and why they use them.


The surveys can be found at https://tinyurl.com/mblcsurvey, and paper copies can be found at libraries around the Commonwealth. Participants in the survey are eligible to win an iPad as a prize, and the drawing for the iPad will take place at the end of the summer.

The survey was developed and will be analyzed in partnership with the firm Sasaki. Founded in Boston, the firm now works internationally addressing the issues of architecture, interior design, planning, urban design, landscape architecture, strategic planning, graphic design, and civil engineering. They have a proven track record in understanding the library ecosystem, how user expectations are evolving, and how library services are changing to meet these expectations.

About MBLC

The Board of Library Commissioners (mass.gov/mblc) is the agency of state government with the statutory authority and responsibility to organize, develop, coordinate and improve library services throughout the Commonwealth. The Board advises municipalities and library trustees on the operation and maintenance of public libraries, including construction and renovation. It administers state and federal grant programs for libraries and promotes cooperation among all types of libraries through regional library systems and automated resource sharing. It also works to ensure that all residents of the Commonwealth, regardless of their geographic location, social or economic status, age, level of physical or intellectual ability or cultural background, have access to essential new electronic information technologies and significant electronic databases.
