Child Development Knowledge Survey

Children's librarians: 

  • Are you a children's librarian working in a public library in the United States?
  • Have you been a children's librarian for fewer than five (5) years?
  • Did you complete an MLS degree (or equivalent) within the last five (5) years?

If you answered "yes" to all three of these questions, then please follow the link below to take a short, anonymous survey regarding child development knowledge, and please feel free to share the link with anyone you know that fits the criteria above! Thank you!
Standard Recruiting statement:

Valdosta State University. If you are a children’s librarian with an MLIS or equivalent
