During the week of April 25, libraries all over Alaska will be taking a ‘snapshot’ of their facility– collecting information to capture the impact that Alaska libraries have on their communities on a typical day. This is the first annual Snapshot Day, sponsored by the Alaska Library Association.
In these difficult economic times, Alaska’s libraries are busier than ever, with people coming not only to check out books, but use computers, look for a job or attend the many programs Alaska’s libraries offer.
Monday is Snapshot Day at the Juneau Public Libraries. Love your library? Use your library? Speak up. Library staff will be collecting comments, pictures, videos and stories during this time; pictures from libraries all over the state will be available on a Snapshot Flickr page. Visit the Snapshot website, snapshotak.pbworks.com, to find out more about this project.
Better yet, visit your local library the week of April 25 and become a part of Snapshot Day 2011.
If you can’t make it into the library, you can go online to fill out this short survey at bit.ly/eMQGMN.
