Snapshot Day One Week Away



Wyoming Snapshot Day will be held October 21, 2020, and if your library isn’t already signed up, we’d love to have you join us. Contact Susan Mark at susan.mark@wyo.gov or (307) 777-5915 to add your name to the list. We’d particularly like to see more school, academic, and special libraries participate.

On Snapshot Day, we ask you to collect photos and/or comments (and/or videos, if feasible) that tell the story of your library’s value each and every day of the year. Here at the WSL, we use these materials for advocacy, and we encourage you to do the same. We understand you may have questions:

What do I need to do to participate?
We have instructions for librarians on the website.

October 21 doesn’t work for me. May I do another day?
Yes! Please do. Just pick a day somewhere near the 21st and let us know. Same deal if you have a special event on a different day that you’d like included.

How do I promote Snapshot Day in my library?
Check out the forms, logos, and flyers we have available to you, including a tip sheet on how to make your Snapshot Day a success.

What if we don’t have a lot of staff time?
Even if you snap only a handful of photos, it adds to the overall results. You may do as little or as much as you’d like. We like to see as many libraries as possible represented.

What if I’m in a school or other library that has restrictions on taking photos of our patrons/students?
You are welcome to take photos of staff, stacks, displays, backs of heads, or “bookface” pics. You can also collect anonymous comments.

How do I send in my photos, comments, or videos?
You will email them or share them online to Susan Mark and she will add them to the Snapshot Day website and to social media. Specific instructions will be sent out to participants by email.

What’s the deadline for signing up?
None. If you decide the morning of October 21 to join in, we’ll happily take your comments, photos, and videos.

What if I have another question?
Contact Susan at susan.mark@wyo.gov or (307) 777-5915 and she’ll be glad to help you.
