2013 Mill Creek Library surveys show mixed results

A representative from Sno-Isle Libraries presented the results of the 2013 Mill Creek Library surveys at the February 6th Mill Creek Library Board meeting.

Sno-Isles Libraries conducted an on-line survey and a phone survey from January 18-28, 2013 to help them figure out whether or not to ask voters for money to replace the existing Mill Creek Library with a larger one.

The answers are not conclusive.

The on-line survey introduction explained that Sno-Isles Libraries is looking for “ways to better meet community needs at the Mill Creek Library, including parking, a meeting room for library programs and community groups and more space for books, CDs and other library materials.”

“Sno-Isle Libraries is considering relocating the library to a larger area along 132nd Avenue Southeast near Seattle Hill Road. Please take a few minutes to complete this anonymous survey about a potential larger library in a new Mill Creek location.”
