On behalf of Rand Simmons, Washington State Library.

Please excuse cross-postings of this message. We are trying to reach as many constituents as possible.

2014 Washington State Library Essential Services survey

The Washington State Library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State, faces a severe reduction in operating funds for the 2015-2017 biennium due to a revenue shortfall. If the state legislature does not appropriate “back-fill” funds the State Library will be an estimated $2.4 million short, a quarter of the budget.

Therefore, we are examining our services to determine which are essential and we want your perspective. Please take a few minutes to complete our online survey located at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2014WSLCustomerSurvey. Thank you for helping us develop a preferred future for the Washington State Library.

Please complete the survey by close of day Friday, October 17, 2014Please don’t respond to it more than once.

Warm regards, 
Rand Simmons
Washington State Library
