Broward County Libraries Division Now Conducting Online Customer Service Survey


Touch screen surveyHow are we doing? Broward County Libraries Division is conducting an Online Customer Service Survey designed to let us know what you think, how you feel and what you have to say about library services, resources and events.
 
Broward County Libraries Division takes pride in doing our best, nothing less for our customers, so from now until July 29 we will be conducting a 10-question survey to hear your thoughts, gather feedback and get your ideas on how we can improve. Tell us how can we "Wow" you!


The ten-question survey polls customer satisfaction in the areas of library services, materials and programs. The results of the survey will be used to improve library service to customers who visit Broward County's 38 libraries and to those who access the library via the library website.
 
In an effort to include customers who may not visit the website, Broward County Library will conduct surveys at a sampling of eight (8) library sites of various sizes using paper surveys. Paper surveys are available in English, Spanish and Haitian Creole.
 
The site visits, which will also conclude July 29, 2015, will take place at the following libraries: Africa-American Research Library and Cultural Center, Century Plaza/Leon Slatin, Dania Beach Paul DeMaio, Hallandale Beach, North Regional/Broward College Library, Stirling Road, Sunrise Dan Pearl and Weston. Each location will be surveyed for a two-hour time period during their busiest time of the day.
