Next Thursday is Library Snapshot Day! #snapmass12

Thursday, April 12th, the Pollard Library is joining libraries across the Commonwealth and the nation to try and answer the question, what happens in a single day in a library? We’ll be taking photos and asking patrons to fill out a short survey that asks them how they are using the library. We’re trying here to raise public awareness about the fact that libraries are busier and more integral to their community than ever. If you want to know more about Massachusetts Snapshot Day you can visit their website. They’ve also posted a list of participating libraries. Here it is again in map form. Here’s a slideshow of photos from our 2011 Snapshot Day.

As a special bonus this year our Children’s Department will be hosting a free drop-in craft from 10am-12pm and from 2pm-4pm. Stop on by the Children’s Desk on the ground floor to decorate picture frames—while supplies last. The library will also be having a Moving & Grooving play group in the afternoon and our Independent Film Night features the Israeli film Vasermil at 6:30pm. But you needn’t be using the library for anything you wouldn’t already to fill out a survey or pose for a picture—so, come on down Thursday, April 12th and be counted. We want to hear from you and count you in!
