The Public Safety Committee, in response to concerns expressed from community members, conducted a brief survey to garner further public thoughts, opinions, and experiences as they relate to the Enumclaw Library. The questions included a 1-10 rating on whether the respondent would recommend the library to others, a yes/no question on whether respondents felt safe/secure while at the library, and lastly an open comment option.
The survey had 1,192 responses over the time it was live. In regards to the rating of the library and recommending to others, the average score was 4. Responses to whether respondents felt safe/secure at the library, were approximately 30% yes, while approximately 70% answered that they did not.
What our committee has gained from this exercise is two-fold. First, that there is genuine concern about activities conducted in and/or around the library. Second, there is an enormous appreciation for what the library can be as a service to our community, and that this service is important to our town.Our committee has moved forward and scheduled a meeting with the director of KCLS, which will take place the first part of September. We are excited for the opportunity to work collaboratively with KCLS, and try to bring solutions and resources that we can as a City to the table. Our hope is to help improve the access and safety of the library for the many of our community that utilize that service for its intended purpose. We look forward to these solutions, and will keep the community informed as our work progresses.
