Have an opinion about library services in Birch Bay? The Whatcom County Library System (WCLS) wants to hear from Birch Bay residents and Sunday, December 11, is the last day to fill out an online survey on library use and interest in a library in Birch Bay.

Paper copies of the survey are available at the Blaine Public Library.

WCLS wants to hear from people living in Birch Bay, whether they use the library or not, according to a press release from WCLS.

The survey is part of an assessment that WCLS is conducting to determine whether to add library services in Birch Bay due to growth in the community. Currently, the WCLS bookmobile visits Birch Bay Square and the Bay City Market every Wednesday for a total of five hours per week.

If WCLS added service to Birch Bay, it would not reduce library services in Blaine, according to the press release.

The library board of trustees will discuss survey results at its December 20 meeting. Take the survey online at wcls.org.
