Stillwater Public Library conducting online technology survey

using computer(STILLWATER, OKLA. / April 7, 2014) –The Stillwater Public Library will be conducting an online survey to find out how its patrons use the library’s computers and Internet connection and how this service has impacted their lives.  The survey will be available to fill out online or in the library until May 3.

“This information in this survey will help our library improve its technology services by telling us what you need,” said Lynda Reynolds, Library Director.  “It will also tell us how to better communicate our free access to computers and the Internet within the community.”

The Impact Survey is anonymous and takes just 10-15 minutes to complete.  It can be accessed by going to the library’s “Feedback” page at http://library.stillwater.org/feedback.php.  Library users may also pick up and fill out a paper survey at the library.

“This survey is a continuation of a 2009 study created through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation,” said Reynolds.  “That study was instrumental in providing evidence that access to the Internet at U.S. public libraries has a profound and measurable impact on individuals and communities.  We want to follow up by finding out how our community specifically has been affected by the substantial upgrades we have provided in the last few years and which upgrades we need to plan for in upcoming years.”

For more information about the survey or the library’s technology services, visit the library website at http://library.stillwater.org or call 405-372-3633 x8106.
