With all of the talk of President Trump’s potential budget cuts, and the need to advocate for libraries, we are bringing back Snapshot Day for 2017!! Last year we had 15 libraries participate, and we would love to see even more libraries participate this year.
What happens in a single day in Vermont libraries? How many books do you check out? What type of activities are taking place? What type of questions are being answered?
Take a “snapshot” of a day in the life of your library and help us get a picture of how Vermont libraries are making a difference in our communities!
Snapshot Day is a statewide initiative where all public, school, academic and special libraries have the opportunity to capture one day in the life of their libraries through, photos, user comments, statistics, and other data. It’s simple. Pick one day between April 9th to 15th, and take the statistics that you would normally keep (# of patron visits, # of people participating in programs, # of items checked out, etc) and send them in me via a simple submission form. The more libraries we have participate the better! And if you want to go even further, grab some quick photos of programs and quotes from your users explaining why they love their library.
The submission form can be found here:
The data you gather will be added to data gathered statewide from all types of libraries and will capture the collective impact that Vermont’s libraries have on their communities on a typical day.Let’s show how library usage makes a difference in the state of Vermont!!! The data you gather will be added to data gathered statewide from all types of libraries and will capture the collective impact that Vermont’s libraries have on their communities on a typical day.
