Results of the January 10, 1974 Survey of the Plainedge Community; An Interpretive Report With Recommendations.
An eight-question survey was mailed to every fifth home in Plainedge, New York, on January 10, 1974. The questionnaires were color coded according to election districts to aid in determining if there were any differences in attitudes toward, or use of, the library, in relation to location, or possible correlation with census tract data relating to education, income level, etc. A total of 1244 surveys were mailed; 226, or 18.16% were tabulated. Of those responding, nearly 90% thought the library collections and quality of assistance were good to excellent. Responses were also noted for the library's publicity efforts, specific services, special subject collections, and frequency of library usage. Analysis of survey results and of community voting patterns on the library budget, led to the conclusion that the library should seek to maintain and improve its image with the community. (Author/SL)
