Willoughby-Eastlake Public Library: A Preliminary Survey of Voter Attitudes.
Jeschelnig, Virginia E.
This study is the pilot project of a feasibility study to measure a community's receptiveness to a tax increase for public library capital improvements and to plan the marketing campaign to improve the likelihood of passage in Lake County, Ohio. This initial phase of the survey examined the pertinent profile of one community, the Village of Timberlake. This pilot study allows the development and refinement of the final survey instrument and offers some preliminary conclusions to be examined by the library administration and the board of trustees. The objectives of this survey are: to determine the voters' satisfaction with the existing buildings and facilities; to identify which services are of most importance to the voters; to examine the strengths and weaknesses of the library's public image; and to identify the areas of support and resistance concerning the tax referendum. A copy of the telephone survey instrument is appended. (Contains 18 references.) (JLB)
