Oxford County Library is committed to promoting and providing its communities with universal access to information, ideas and engaging experiences in welcoming spaces.

We recognize that for our patrons in rural communities, accessing library services presents unique challenges. This may be due to physical distance from a library branch, hours of operation for our rural branches, internet connectivity, or other issues.

The 2024 Rural Community Engagement Survey is your chance to help shape the future of your local library and make it even better. We want to know how we can enhance library services for our rural patrons through options for open hours; physical or virtual set up of library spaces; and the activities, collections and technology we offer.



2024 Rural Community Engagement Survey


The Rural Community Engagement Survey is quick and easy, taking only 5-10 minutes to finish.

Your answers will help us understand how well the library is doing and what we can do to make it even better for you. The survey is open until May 1, 2024.

By taking part, you'll have a chance to win one of five (5) $40 gift cards to a local shop or restaurant of your choice -- be sure to fill out the last question in the survey to enter.

If you use Oxford County Library branches in Ingersoll or Tillsonburg, or Woodstock Public Library, we appreciate your support, but this survey is for the rural areas of Oxford County. If you live in Ingersoll, Tillsonburg, or Woodstock, but consider a rural branch your “home branch,” feel free to complete the survey.

Your responses are important and will be kept private.



Other ways to have a say


The survey is an important tool to help us determine patterns and overall preferences among our rural patrons. If you don't want to fill out a survey, there are other ways you can share your thoughts with us.
