Metro Brief: County libraries to participate in Library Snapshot Day

Montgomery County

On February 15, 2015

Montgomery County Public Libraries will celebrate February as Library Lovers Month by participating in the fifth annual Library Snapshot Day on February 18. The day’s activities demonstrate how residents love and use their libraries and emphasize the value and importance of libraries in communities. On Snapshot Day, the libraries will compile statistics, customer comments, photographs and other data chronicling a typical library day. Special activities will include VIP Read activities at selected libraries. “During the last Snapshot Day, we collected valuable statistics that demonstrated the importance of libraries in the lives Montgomery County residents,” said Parker Hamilton, MCPL director. “But  the greatest impact came from the photos and stories that were collected – mothers interacting with their children; seniors accessing the internet; students studying together; preschoolers attentively listening to a story; and in the words of a customer, ‘If it weren’t for MCPL, I would never have become the reader I am today.’ Snapshot Day is about our customers, and we want them in the picture.”

Snapshot Day is sponsored by the Maryland Library Association, under the auspices of the American Library Association. Snapshot: One Day in the Life of Montgomery County Public Libraries, is a collaborative event organized by Montgomery County Public Libraries; the Montgomery County Library Board; the Friends of the Library, Montgomery County, Inc.; local Friends of the Library chapters; and the Library Advisory Committees.
