The Lake County Library System will be participating in “Snapshot: A Day in the Life of Florida Libraries” during the week of January 25, 2011. This state-wide project will illustrate the importance of libraries for Florida’s citizens through collection of statistics, stories and photographs.
Member and Branch libraries will join libraries across Florida in conducting special events, taking pictures, and collecting statistics and customer comments showing how Floridians are utilizing their libraries. The Florida Library Association, in partnership with the State Library and Archives of Florida, will be posting the results on a Web site, where everyone can see these powerful stories. Library Snapshot Day provides an opportunity to show leaders and lawmakers what kind of results libraries deliver our communities.
Several other states have already had successful Library Snapshot Days. “Snapshot: A Day in the Life of Florida Libraries” is part of a broader effort organized by the American Library Association.
