Class survey coming.

What do you want to learn? We want to know. Have you ever thought, "gee, I'd like to learn more about X" or, "I could do my job better if I only knew how to Y"? Would you like to teach your own class? Your ideas matter. Share them with us next week when we send you a link to our class survey. It is only 4 questions and shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes. This is your chance to let us know what's important to you. It's anonymous so there's no reason to be shy!


The Library & LRC will be closed
December 24 and 25, 2012
