Texas Library Snapshot Day

snapshotsAs you may have read in TLACast and other announcements, libraries can designate any single day in October as Library Snapshot Day. This opportunity allows you and us to gather information about library activities. It is a “snapshot” of a day in the life of your library and provides a forum for sharing what happens across the state.  

Over the past few years we've gathered some wonderful input from patrons statewide. And, it is of little surprise that Texans really do love libraries! The information collected provides compelling data that libraries are valued in their communities and essential to supporting personal, educational, and economic goals of individuals and entities across the state.

At www.Texaslibrarysnapshotday.org you’ll find a resource library of template press releases, photo and video release forms, bookmarks, summary sheets, tips for using the information to talk with elected officials, and patron input forms for libraries. You will also find instructions on what data to collect and the survey form itself.

Thank you, in advance, for helping us make Texas Library Snapshot Day a success! We look forward to finding out what happens in a single day in YOUR library!
