Take Our Technology Impact Survey and You Could Win!

gift cardAt Cecil County Public Library, we’re always interested in hearing from our patrons so we can serve our community better.  This October, we are reviewing CCPL’s technology services with a short 10-15 minute survey — the best part is that when you finish, you can enter to win a $50 Walmart gift card!

Your answers will help us understand how people are using the library’s technology.  We know that many people in the community depend on us for access to computers and the internet for tasks like job searching, accessing health information, writing resumes, doing homework, and printing pay stubs.  This survey will help us learn even more about the public’s technology needs.

This survey is confidential and does not collect any personally identifiable information.  It asks for your birth year to make sure you’re over 14, but all other questions are optional — you are free to not answer any questions you do not want to answer.   Even answering some of the questions will still be helpful to us.

Click here to start the survey and don’t forget to enter for the $50 Walmart gift card once you’re done!  If you’re more comfortable filling out the survey on paper, we have copies at each of our 7 branches.  Thanks for your help!

New Spring Programs


This winter was so cold, snowy and long that it’s hard to believe spring is really here.  Yet bit by bit, the days are getting longer, crocuses are peaking through, and on the warmer days, you can hear the lovely sound of peeper frogs in the distance.

To give the new season a thoroughly hospitable welcome, we’ve planned an array of programs – from planting to canning to beekeeping and more – that will get you thinking spring.  Click the links below to sign up.
