SWLPLD Community Survey 2022

The Southwest La Plata Library District was created in 2019 to save our two libraries, Sunnyside Public Library and Fort Lewis Mesa Public Library, from being closed. We have spent the past few years establishing a foundation for the successful future of these two rural La Plata county libraries.

Now, we’re reaching out to the community and asking for your ideas and feedback. Please help us by clicking on the button below and filling out our survey!
