This survey is one step in the process of updating the Library’s Long Range Plan.This Plan sets goals and priorities,in targeted areas such as employment & economy, education, broadband connectivity, health & mental health, diversity, and recreation. The new Long Range Plan will also guide further partnerships with local organizations such as schools, literacy agencies, Balsam West, NC Works, Arts Councils and galleries, AARP, local community clubs, health and human services organizations, environmental groups, and more. Local partners are a critical building block of success in key areas in our communities.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, Fontana Regional Library system responded by modifying many services, including mobile wifi hotspots and curbside service.

The Library welcomes survey responses from all residents, including those not currently using library services.
