MANALAPAN – Users of the Monmouth County Library are invited to participate in a survey designed to assess the needs of residents during recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Results will help evaluate the tools, programs, and services most beneficial as the public transitions.
The survey is sponsored by the New Jersey Civic Community Recovery Committee (NJCCRC), a group of dedicated NJ library leaders whose mission is working with stakeholders to create a new civic infrastructure that responds to this crisis with community-driven solutions.
Feedback from the survey will be used to leverage resources of public libraries, in order to best meet the needs of residents. Survey results will help adapt this vital role in the transitional phase into a post-pandemic environment. Templates will be created for programs, tool-kits and trainings for libraries and stakeholders to adapt and implement.
“Our Monmouth County libraries are one of the most trusted institutions in our County,” said Frank Wells, Chair of the Monmouth County Library Commission. “They have always played a key role in social and workforce development programs and will be able to offer even more vital services as we recover and adapt to a new normal.”
“Monmouth County Library Director Judi Tolchin is a member of the NJCCRC,” said Freeholder Lillian Burry, liaison from the Board of Freeholders to the county library. “This is a statewide initiative and Judi has made the survey information available to gather as much information as possible so our library can continue to provide the outstanding services and activities which keep it among the finest and most accessible in the state.”
