Responses to our Public Library Funding & Technology Access survey have increased significantly in the last week – thank you for all of your efforts!
But we still would like to have a higher response rate, and we also need to allow some extra time for those libraries in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Opportunity Online Hardware program. Right now, nationwide there is a 55% response rate overall. In Vermont, we have about a 20% response rate. 60% is the preferred minimum threshold, but the higher the response rate, the better the data.
As a result, the survey has been extended through Friday, November 13, 2009.

We know you’re completing your Annual Public Library Reports and Standards Applications, but hope you can see you way clear to participating in this nationwide survey, as well.
