Delivery Question from LLNJ

Delivery - Unique Hours Survey

• This question is only for LibraryLinkNJ members who use the delivery service.

• We need your help. LibraryLinkNJ is preparing to re-bid the delivery contract later this year. In preparation, we need some information about any unique daytime weekday hours your library is open. We are defining “unique” as anything shorter than a full 9 am to 5 pm. 

School libraries on delivery do not need to respond to this request.

• Please find out if your library needs to respond to this question and fill fill out the survey form before Friday, July 14th.
