Hello Everyone!

My name is Jessica Yost, and I am a graduate student at Mansfield University of 
Pennsylvania. In May, I will complete my Master's degree in K-12 School Library and 
Information Technologies. I am currently preparing part of a presentation for a 
conference in Massachusetts titled "Canada's Game? Critical Perspectives on Ice 
Hockey and Identity." I am working on this presentation with Dr. Celeste Burns (a 
professor in our Education Department) and another graduate student. At this time, 
I am collecting information for our presentation, titled "Passing it on:  Hockey in 
Canadian Children's Literature." As a result, I have a brief, 5 question survey 
that I would like to get to Canadian Librarians (preferably school librarians, but 
the response from public librarians would certainly be appreciated as well).

I would GREATLY appreciate any responses to this survey. Thanks for your time! 
Below are the survey questions.

Have a nice afternoon!
