Share Your Voice: Take our Community Survey 

River Forest Public Library has begun work on a new strategic plan and one of our first steps is to gather community input and ideas. Please share your voice by completing our short survey (8 minutes). Results from this survey will help us set appropriate goals and prioritize funding in ways that make sense for our community.  

All members of the household are invited to complete the survey. Paper copies are available at all service desks. The survey will be open until October 7. 

Take the survey now.
