Texas Library Snapshot Day
ZOOMING IN ON YOU!

 

 
TEXAS LIBRARY SNAPSHOT DAY PROVES

Texans Love Libraries!

How does Library Snapshot Day work?

Although the standard date is October 31, libraries can pick any single day in October and promote that day to their community and students.
 

1. Let folks know you’ll be “snapping” a shot of the library’s activities that day. It’s your way of asking patrons to say “cheese!”
 

2. Collect data, stories, and photographs.
 

3. Upload that information to the Texas Library Snapshot Day Web form. Be sure to upload your information by November 15.
 

What then?
Libraries can use the information gathered in their own activities, see what other libraries are doing, and get a sense of statewide library usage. All the information is accessible to participating libraries.

What happens in a single day in your library?

Take a “snapshot” of a day in the life of your library to add to data gathered statewide from all types of libraries.

The images and statistics are used to promote Texas libraries.
