With support from the American Library Association (ALA), Library Snapshot day is a national phenomenon that has quickly spread across the US.
Library Snapshot Day provides a way for libraries of all types across a state, region, system or community to show what happens in a single day in their libraries. How many books are checked out? How many people receive help finding a job? Doing their homework? This initiative provides an easy means to collect statistics, photos and stories that will enable library advocates to prove the value of their libraries to decision-makers and increase public awareness.
We will be having our very own Library Snapshot Day on 1/11/11 in the prison and psychiatric hospital libraries of Washington State. On this day we will be taking statistics, collecting photos and stories, and we will be publishing the results online.
