Survey Results

You spoke and we listened! In a February 2014 survey we asked a random sample of CCPL patrons a series of questions about their library use.

The results? 40% of you said your main reason for using CCPL is learning. As a result, one of our strategic goals for this year is to "create transformative 21st century library experiences by cultivating a learning-charged environment." And if you’re curious, most people who chose "other" wrote in that they use CCPL specifically for books.
