The American Library Association Public Programs Office is collaborating with the National Center for Interactive Learning (NCIL) at Space Science Institute (SSI), Boulder, Colorado, the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI), and the National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) on a series of science exhibits and programs in libraries. To help develop these exhibits and programs, the participating institutions have created the STAR_Net project (Science-Technology Activities and Resources Library Education Network). STAR_Net aspires to foster an appreciation and deeper understanding of science and technology topics by underserved youth and their families through programs in public libraries and library collaborations with scientists and science organizations.
STAR_Net has developed an online survey that seeks information about current science programming in public libraries for various age groups to guide development of science exhibits and programs for libraries.
If you work at a public library and are interested in helping to shape the development of science programming opportunities in public libraries, please complete the online survey by Wednesday, May 18.
Your responses will help inform decisions about the design of the STAR_Net project. There are a total of twenty-five questions. It should take you about fifteen minutes to complete the survey.
Thank you for taking the time to participate!
