The Carnegie Free Library survey: Lend some support

| Friday, Jan. 11, 2013, 8:58 p.m.

The Carnegie Free Library is a prized historic possession in Connellsville.

For 110 years, the local library has been offering sources of information for those seeking additional knowledge.

To ensure its continuing mission to meet the educational, informational and recreational needs of the community, library leaders are asking residents to complete a simple but important survey.

Library officials are hoping the survey will provide answers to what residents want from the facility.

We urge residents to visit the library's home page at carnegiefreelib.org and take a few minutes to give their opinions.

Clearly, the Carnegie Free Library is striving to connect with the community.

Like all libraries, the Carnegie is positioned to help local citizens improve their command of literacy through services and programs.

Libraries are there for everyone — students, parents, employees, consumers — anyone. Over the years, they have moved far beyond just being book repositories.

Today, libraries are institutions serving public needs.

Help the local library reach its goals of providing services that the community wants and needs.

Let your voice be heard.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
