Community Needs Survey Flyer

Oxford CT Public Library Community Feedback Survey!

Public libraries prioritize needs, wants, and interests of the communities they serve. We at the Oxford Public Library are surveying all Oxford, CT households in order to explore the best way we can serve the members of our community in recreation, education, and access. This project was made possible by funding through the ALA/NEH American Rescue Plan: Humanities Grant for Libraries. Thank you for taking the time to fill out this survey!


Exciting announcements!

The Oxford Public Library was selected on June 1st by the American Library Association (@ALALibrary) to receive one of only 77 grants given nationwide, and is the only Connecticut library awarded grant funding for this 2022 ALA COVID Library Relief Fund. This $20,000 grant will help maintain and amplify existing services through the end of 2022. Our grant funding will support digital loaning platforms, educational materials for adults, and developing and updating collections such as graphic novels, juvenile nonfiction and adult nonfiction in the field of humanities and culture.
