The Douglas County Public Library is currently embarking on the development of a new five-year strategic plan.  As part of this effort, faculty from the University of Nevada, Reno have developed a community survey designed to gather input that will be used to help shape this strategic plan and ongoing and future program, resource, and service development that the Library will pursue over the next five years.  Please take a few minutes to complete the survey online, available at:
