Library Staff Seeks Inpu_'00 From l00ablic Hogansville Patrons Will Be Surveyed As Part of Statewide Services Critique Hogansville residents are being asked to critique their library. During the week of June 4 the Hogansvi_lle Public Library, as a branch of Troup-Harris-Coweta Regional Library System, will be participating in a statewide Customer Satisfaction Survey. The annual survey is used to allow public library customers a chance to share their feelings and experiences about their library with the local library. In addition to being used as a local planning tool, the survey results are used across the state to help public libraries improve their services. "Many of our public libraries have used the results of previous surveys to make changes in their services, facilities and library activities," said Tom Ploeg, Acting Assistant Vice Chancellor and Acting Director of the Office of Public Library Services. "Public libraries in Georgia are a vital link in the education- al chain. We are continuing to see lic Fbr_ries and we are happy to receive their responses to this survey.," Ploeg said. The survey results help offi- cials plan services that will be offered in the future at the Hogansville library. On a statewide basis the responses are tallied from each library system and then used to determine an overall customer satisfaction level in the state. Last year, the patrons in Georgia's publi c libraries gave them a "grade" of 90.84% - which indicates that 90.84% of the peo- ple who use the public libraries are at least satisfied with the ser- vice that they received. This "grade" is also used each year by the Governor's Office of Planning and Budget as it reviews the results Based Budget mea- sures of agencies that receive state funds for opera.
