You Can Help Improve the Library’s Website!

Published on Fri, 08/16/2019 - 07:44am

Thanks to previous user feedback, Mid-Continent Public Library has implemented a number of enhancements to its website over the years, making it easier to find what you need. Now, the Library would like to enlist your help again! Join MCPL staff members for a focus group discussion about the Library’s website, and give your input on changes for improvement.

Participation will last approximately 1.5 hours and will be split between completing specific tasks on the website followed by group discussion. Our focus will be on the website rather than the catalog at this time. There are three opportunities to participate, so if you’re interested in sharing your thoughts about the website, register today!

We look forward to seeing you—and hearing your ideas.

Might increase broader reading or on site browsing if excerpts of great reads were posted. Example: “It was the best of times it was the worst of times...” ~Charles Dickens.
For younger readers a bit of a game... i.e. “One fish, two fish, green fish, blue fish. ~ ? “ allowing the young reader to stretch their brains to recall the Author. This would encourage so many faceted effects. Go a step further with some reward... be it a free root beer at Mugs Up or and apple pie from McDonalds. These businesses would then get free advertising perks with their affiliation. This would also encourage attendance at the building site itself in which to get the reward. Another thought. Why isn’t there the a post like Word of the day? Continent of the Month with facts of the Country of the week? Again... “Play it again. Sam “ H. Bogart... name the movie. All these encourage interactions with both FB site and the MCPL stores as well. So, rather than dress up for a more professional application, go for a more pleasantly enjoyable and versatile interaction with both your members and fellow business owners. Good luck.

Kelly, that’s a great suggestion - I'll share that with the developers! Thanks for the feedback!


I would love to see a request to purchase form that users could submit after searching to find the title not in the catalog.
