On Wednesday, April 13, Massachusetts libraries will join libraries across the nation to provide a snapshot of what happens in the day in the life of libraries. How many books are checked out? How many people receive help finding a job? Doing their taxes? Doing their homework? During Snapshot Day libraries will collect data and photos that help demonstrate the value of libraries and raise public awareness that libraries are busier than ever.
Everyone can participate just by doing their regular library business, such as using the Internet, checking out books, doing research, or attending a program. Programs that day will include a movie for children ages 6 and up at 1 pm, Wii games for “Tweens” (ages 8-11) at 3 pm.
Patrons who sign a release to have their photo taken and submitted to be used in statewide publications will get a chance to win prizes sponsored by the Friends of the Vineyard Haven Public Library. Stop by and be counted!
