FOSL Survey


This is a new group – Stirchley residents are establishing a Friends of Stirchley Library. (More on our ‘About’ page.)

In order to make this a success we need to know that there is support for such a group, and if so, how we can support the library.

We have written a survey with questions which will  help to give us a clearer picture of the different types of support available e.g. time, skills and resources…

The survey is available here:
