Take a photo of your library on Wyoming Snapshot Day Oct. 19

From the Wyoming State Library:

On Tuesday, Oct. 19, we want to collect your stories, photos, videos and patron numbers for Wyoming Libraries Snapshot Day to show the tremendous impact that the state's libraries have on Wyoming residents every single day. Snapshot Day events have been held in several other states with good success.

Snapshot Day will provide tools to use for advocacy with Legislators, Commissioners, local elected officials, donors and the public. To get the best "snapshot" of the entire state, we need participation from as many libraries as possible, and from all types of libraries -- public, academic, school and special.

For now -- please save the date! More specific information will be posted soon and announced through the Outrider and by the State Library and Wyoming Library Association e-mail lists. We will try to make it as simple as possible to participate and will provide forms and materials that you can use to make Snapshot Day a success in your library. We welcome any suggestions you may have. Questions?

Please direct questions to:

Susan Mark, 307-777-5915.
Lesley Rowbal, 307-777-7283

You may also call the Wyoming State Library's toll-free line at 1-800-264-1281 to reach either Susan or Lesley.

Wyoming Library Snapshot Day is a project of the Wyoming State Library and the Wyoming Library Association.
