We're partnering with ThedaCare to check-in on Community Health.  http://www.thedacaresurvey.com/ Please consider participating in ThedaCare's Well Being Survey! Their Community Health team just launched this survey to understand the overall wellbeing of their 9 county service region. The goal is to learn how the COVID-19 Pandemic has affected people's lives in our area and help them better understand where to focus their community health efforts. This information will also help us to identify future Library programming opportunities. Responses collected through Friday, May 14, 2021 and will be kept confidential.
