The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) is seeking input from public and school library staff regarding Beanstack, a platform used for reading challenges and purchased with Library Service and Technology Act (LSTA) funding from May 2020 through April 2023 for public libraries and August 2021 through April 2023 for school district libraries.
The information gathered in this survey will be used to better understand how this product has or has not met the needs of library staff and the Wisconsin youth they serve – and to make decisions about future contracts for the use of Beanstack; therefore, candid and honest responses are greatly appreciated.
If you are a school or public librarian serving youth and/or offering reading programs to your patrons, the DPI would appreciate your participation in this survey regardless of whether or not you currently use Beanstack. If another individual at your institution would be better suited to respond to this survey, please forward it to them to complete.
The time required to complete the survey should be 10-15 minutes. Please complete this survey by no later than Friday, December 23rd.
