Reference Services Survey

brookline village main library reference room again
The Public Library of Brookline wants to hear what you think of our reference services. The Reference Desk at the Brookline Village Library is located at the back of the building, in front of the Reading Room and computer area. Reference librarians answer questions related to the Library, technology, accessing materials, and more; we also plan Library programs for adults.

As we determine future goals for the Reference Department, we would like to hear from the community. Are we meeting your needs? What services do you use, and what can we do better? We hope to hear from you!
