*** November 2013 update: On Wednesday, October 9, Montgomery County Libraries participated in Snapshot Day. Snapshot Day is a nationwide initiative started by the American Library Association to take a “snapshot” of a day in the life of libraries. Data is gathered statewide from all types of libraries. Montgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL) has participated in Snapshot Day for the past three years and did so again this year. MCPL staff and volunteers collected usage statistics, customer comments, and photographs depicting everyday activities in libraries on that day.
Many thanks from the Library Board and the Friends of the Library, Montgomery County to all the volunteers who lent a hand on Snapshot Day. Without your energy and enthusiasm we could not have had such success at branch events. You helped with programs, VIP readings, and handed out and collected comment cards. Best of all, you greeted library users and spread the word that we have a terrific library system. We look forward to working with you at future library events.
We want you in the picture! Wednesday, October 9 is Library Snapshot Day.
We invite you to join MCPL; the Friends of the Library, Montgomery County, Inc.; local Friends chapters; the Montgomery County Library Board; and the Library Advisory Committees as we celebrate Library Snapshot Day: One Day in the Life of Montgomery County Public Libraries.
Sponsored by the Maryland Library Association, under the auspices of the American Library Association, Library Snapshot Day provides MCPL an opportunity to collect statistics, pictures and stories that show how people love and use their libraries. A variety of activities, including VIP Reads, will take place throughout the day at all open MCPL branches.
Stop by your local branch and check out all MCPL has to offer. Be in the picture!
