I'm sharing this message on behalf of ALA:
ALA's Public Programs Office is partnering with Knology (www.knology.org<http://www.knology.org/>), a nonprofit research organization, to develop impact indicators for library programming and explore library partnerships. As part of this research, we are asking all libraries to participate in a short, 15-minute survey. At the conclusion of the survey, you will be invited to provide contact information if you are interested in participating in a follow-up interview or focus group discussion. While there is no compensation for filling out the survey, interview and focus group participants will receive a gift card.
This survey is part of a larger collaborative effort between ALA PPO and Knology, the National Impact of Library Public Programs Assessment (NILPPA, www.nilppa.org<http://www.nilppa.org/>). This survey is funded by IMLS grant LG-250153-OLS-21.
Please note that the survey will ask for information about your library / library system, including the size of your service population, staff size, operating budget, and open hours. You may find it helpful to have this information accessible when you begin the survey. (Approximations are fine, we don't need exact figures.)

Thank you in advance for your support of our research efforts.
