The Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop is conducting a survey to better understand the often-overlooked roles that librarians play in cultivating children’s interests across settings.

The Cooney Center seeks individuals who work at community and school libraries serving children ages 3-12 to take part in this survey, which takes about 20 minutes to complete. Survey participants will have a chance to enter a raffle to win a $25 Amazon gift card.

The survey will not collect any identifiable information and participation is voluntary. Participants have the right to stop at any time. For questions about this research, contact the Cooney Center at

This survey is part of the center’s Families Learning Across Boundaries (FAMLab) project, which includes a series of surveys with parents, teachers, and librarians to paint a more comprehensive picture of how children are linking their learning experiences across home, school, and beyond, and the roles that adults play in helping children cultivate and bridge their interests.
