      Alabama Citizens Asked to Share Library Views

      Alabama citizens are being asked to share their views on public
      libraries during an October online statewide survey. Their opinions will
      help shape the future of the state's public libraries, said Alabama
      Public Library Service Director Rebecca Mitchell.

      The library survey begins October 1 and can be taken at any computer
      with Internet access. Citizens can submit the survey from their home,
      office or local public library. The online survey will be available
      through October 31. To access the survey online, visit
      http://webapp.slis.ua.edu/goals07 and follow the directions.

      Mitchell urged citizens to take the survey. "We need input from the
      public to evaluate current services and to ensure libraries remain a
      vital part of the community in the future," she said. APLS will use the
      information to develop a five-year plan for the state's public libraries
      for 2008-2012.

      Those who are unable to access the survey online can obtain a printed
      copy from their library and mail it to the School of Library and
      Information Studies, University of Alabama, Box 870252, Tuscaloosa, AL
      35487-0252, ATTN: STATE PLAN.

      The library wish-list of some citizens was heard at eight meetings held
      in the summer at locations throughout Alabama. The survey will allow
      anyone who did not attend a meeting to be heard.

      The 2002-2007 plan identified priorities for the state's public
      libraries, including reading programs for children and young adults,
      services for the underserved and for people with special needs.
