On behalf of the Palatine Library District, you are cordially invited to participate in a focus group about your interest in and experience with our libraries. As a member of our community, we need your input in an information gathering session with your peers to discuss library services, programs, and collections and to share how we can continue to support you and your family into the future.
In addition to an open town hall at the Main Library, we are holding space for more focused discussions with individuals from several demographic groups.

This is a great opportunity to connect with others in the community and make a positive impact on the future of your Library. Insights shared during the focus group will be invaluable in helping the Library to build programs and services that serve your needs and enhance our community.
All focus groups will be organized and facilitated by a third-party researcher, Essentiam, to encourage open and honest dialogue. Attendees will receive a $25 VISA gift card after they attend and participate in the focus group.
