Survey Says…School Age Programming: How often programs are offered

A few weeks ago Marge Loch-Wouters and I tried our hand at surveying school age programming librarians to see what the pulse is around the country. It’s always helpful to know what works and what doesn’t with other librarians around the country. We all learn from each other.  You can see other posts here concerning the results of the very informal survey.

We had a total of 171 responses:

Total librarians who run sa programmingIt seems that lots of libraries around the country are busy every week with school age programming, which is nice to see!

How often programming

And, there are only a lucky few who can focus solely on school age programming. Everyone else is busy working the circulation desk, planning and executing storytimes, ordering, processing, cataloging, and all the other fun duties in our field!
