Festive Feedback Campaign

December 11, 2014

The library is running a feedback campaign throughout December.

If you could ask for one thing to make the Library work better for you, what would you ask for?

Please fill in one of our Christmas bauble shaped feedback forms, and hang it on our Christmas tree on level 1 of the Saltire Centre. Baubles are available at the Christmas tree, or at the Library Desk.

We look forward to reading your comments!
