Strategic Plan Survey

Strategic Plan Survey

The Des Moines Public Library is beginning a strategic planning initiative to help us envision the future of serving our communities. One part of this process is to get your input! So we would love if you could take this short, anonymous survey.

Tell us how the library can best serve your needs and wants, and tell us how we are performing. We promise it takes only 5 minutes!
