New Mexico Library Snapshot Day 2015

New Mexico Library Snapshot Day 2015 is Thursday, April 16!
Snapshot Day is an advocacy project designed to help show the impact libraries make in any given day. Participating libraries will document “a day in the life” of their libraries by taking photos, collecting anecdotes, and recording data about services provided. Librarians will submit their documentation to the State Library for aggregation. From there, advocacy materials will be created and made available for use in your own communities.
If April 16 is not a good day for your library, you can celebrate any day during the week of April 12 -18 (National Libraries Week). 

Participating libraries will:

  • Track usage data at their library for one day and complete a survey.
  • Take photos of patrons using library services. Post to social media and the NM State Library Flickr account!
  • Collect anecdotes about why your patrons love using the library.

To participate, you will need the following resources:

Thank you again for your commitment to this advocacy project. I can’t wait to get all of your results: photos, stories, and survey data. I will compile a statewide report that you will be encouraged to use in your communities to express the vital need of libraries!

Happy National Libraries Week, and good luck with Snapshot Day!
