Montgomery County Public Libraries to Conduct Online Survey for National Library Week

From Montgomery County:

To help determine the effectiveness of its services and programs, Montgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL) has announced that it will conduct a Customer Satisfaction Survey in its 20 branches during National Library Week, April 10-16.

This year’s survey, for library customers 12 years of age and over, will be an online questionnaire available through the library website, www.montgomerycountymd.gov/library.

The survey can be completed from work, home or school or at an MCPL branch any day during National Library Week.  In addition to English, the survey will be available in Spanish and Chinese.

Rosebud: Recognizing Local Talent for 20 Years

The Rosebud Film and Video Festival is THE DMV film festival, accepting entries exclusively from residents of D.C., Maryland, and Virginia. It's been around for 20 years now, making it a D.C. film institution. That kind of longevity is a rarity for film festivals, many of which vanish after just one year.

Rosebud forgoes the glitz of many of its counterparts focusing instead on substance. As it states on its website, “The Rosebud Festival seeks to honor the innovative, experimental, unusual, and deeply personal in creative film and video making.” And rather than a sack full of trendy schwag, filmmakers have the chance to go home with one of five $1,000 prizes. Speaking as a filmmaker, I'd much rather have the $1,000.
