Survey Results - Suggestions
Suggestions for improvements:
I want filtered water fountains
It is a really nice library that could/should be upgraded soon. I like how I can do homework with friends and have doing it but also a silent floor, for when I have to put in work
Love it! But too hot all the time
Our library is very helpful and has resources for about everything you could ever need! Maybe a little dull and outdated to studying
Renew I.L.Ls that are overdue. They should be put in your library account, not on an unlinked I.L.L account/site
The library is pretty legit but I am saddened we do not have our own copy of Herland by Charlotte Gilman
Need to improve wireless in corners, and bean bag area
