Dear Friends of the Library,

On behalf of the Division of Libraries, Archives and Museums (DLAM), I would like to invite you to share your thoughts on the USVI Public Libraries. We have been working with DLAM documenting and understanding the needs of the USVI public libraries and developing future plans.

As you know the last decade has been full of challenges due to the economic downturns, the 2017 hurricanes and now COVID-19. The public libraries are at a crossroads and your feedback is critical and important in building the future of these important services.

Please respond on or before Friday, October 30, 2020 in order to be counted!
