ITHACA, N.Y.(WENY)--The Tompkins County Public Library (TCPL) wants to hear from their community members about how they use the library, and how it could improve in years to come. The TCPL released a survey Tuesday morning to numerous community outlets and online sites asking those in Tompkins County who use the library to take 10 minutes out of their day and take this survey. In the past, community response has helped the library improve in ways such as eliminating late fees, creating new meeting rooms and teen centers, a long with many other additions to the library. 

"So this is really in keeping with that and finding out as what I said every, every single community defines the library they want. So we want to make sure that's what we have for them and there are no barriers. So the survey is designed to tell us that. We had a series of focus groups that launched our capital campaign when the library was redesigned to include a teen area, local history center, maker space, and digital lab and it was a result of all of the feed back from the community," says Annette Birdsall, Director of the TCPL.
