Long Beach Public Library Seeks Community Input

The Long Beach Public Library has launched a survey to help determine community interest in areas such as when and how often the library is open, how patrons want to hear about library news and events, and what adaptive or assistive technology patrons want the library to provide.

The survey is available in:

Paper copies of the survey are also available at all open library locations.


“Community input is crucial for planning city services”, said Mayor Robert Garcia. “This is especially true for our libraries, which need be open and available for visits by all Long Beach residents when most convenient for them. That is the goal.”

This survey will also allow the library to hear from the community about what services are most important to them and offer community members an opportunity to suggest services they’d like to see the library provide. “Long Beach Public Library has a very long history of adapting to meet our community’s needs, in fact this year marks 125 years of history.”, said Glenda Williams, Library Services Director. “We want to hear from all our users, and even those not currently using our libraries, to help us plan for the future to ensure that everyone feels welcome and invested in visiting their neighborhood library.”
