Library Snapshot Day in review at Washington Corrections Center for Women

Patrons of the Washington Corrections Center for Women Library

I was very nervous on 1/10/11 about Library Snapshot Day. A lot of things can go wrong in a prison library setting. It turned out to be a very positive experience. We always have bookmarks to hand out but on this day we had some rather fancy ones for our patrons. These fancy ones said Washington Rural Heritage on the front and a short bio on the back about a famous Washingtonian. My customers loved the attention of getting their photos taken and they all had the chance to fill out a survey that told us how we were doing in the library. The inmates learned that their family would be able to go to a website and view their pictures and this thrilled them. It was a fun day for all.

  1. I’m so glad everything went well at WCCW. I was also really nervous. At 12:20 before any inmates arrived I was running around the library looking for something anything I might have forgotten. I’m sure if anyone were to review the tapes they’d think I’d lost it.

    Another great out come of all this is not only that the public get’s to see your library but your co-workers do to!!
