Announcing Library Snapshot Week, September 25 - October 1, 2022

22 Sep 2022 3:31 PM | Jeff Eastman

Have you found yourself wondering, “what would happen if libraries went away, even for a day?” This is the driving question asked back in 2007 by New Jersey library workers that gave us Library Snapshot Day. The MLA Legislative Advocacy Committee is pleased to present Library Snapshot Day 2022 and we hope you’ll join us!

Library Snapshot Day is about collecting data, yes, but it also aims to shine a light on the impact libraries have on communities. And we want to share that impact with elected officials, decision-makers, and other community leaders. The best advocacy work we can do is proactive and Library Snapshot Day is one more tool for raising awareness in our quiver. Please plan to join us for Library Snapshot Day 2022 and let others know what awesome things you do everyday by sharing one day.

What you will do:

  • Pick any day during the week of September 25 - October 1, 2022

  • Take a picture of your library in action

  • Track the data and fill in this quick survey 

  • Attach your picture at the end of the survey

That’s it!

What we will do:

We’ll send you a personalized, snappy little one-pager to share with your elected officials and we’ll put together a complete report for the Maine State Library to share with state and national leaders.
