TEXAS LIBRARY SNAPSHOT DAY PROVES
Texans Love Libraries!
How does Library Snapshot Day work?
Although the target day for 2012 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
2. Collect data, stories, and
Upload that information to the Texas
Library Snapshot Day Web form. Be sure to upload your information by
November 12, 2012.
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
