• Library survey: Tell them what you think

    Pamela Jungerberg, Reference Librarian at the Pacific Grove Public Library, advises that the Library staff has resumed their blog on their website and will update it often. The public is urged to read it and be updated on issues facing the library. The first item of business is a survey, which librarians hope will help them

    Due to proposed budget cuts, the Library will be reducing hours and services beginning July 2009. To help us plan for the future, the Library is currently conducting two surveys. We would greatly appreciate your input on the following two issues:

    1) Library Hours. Hours will be reduced from 31 hours to 20 or 24 hours per week. Currently the Library is open Tuesday through Saturday. If hours are reduced, the Library will be open only four days a week. When do you use the Library? When would you like to use the Library?


    2) Interlibrary Loan (ILL). This service allows our cardholders to borrow books or receive photocopies of documents that we do not own, from other libraries. Currently, for a $1 fee, a cardholder may request an item at the Reference Desk. Our staff identifes owners of the desired item, places the request, receives the item, makes it available to the cardholder, and arranges for its return. Although books and journal articles are the most frequently requested items, we have also made ILL requests for audio recordings, sheet music, and microforms.


    Survey forms may be picked up at the Library or downloaded from the Library’s website and filled out. the library’s blog website is at http://pacificgrovelibrary.blogspot.com/
