On Thursday, February 18, 2010, libraries all over Connecticut will be taking a 'snapshot"-collecting information to capture the impact that Connecticut libraries have on their communities on a typical day. We're calling it 'Snapshot Day.'

At the Edith Wheeler Memorial Library we will be asking our patrons to comment on what their library means to them and taking pictures to submit, along with libraries all over the stare, to the Snapshot Flickr page.

Snapshot Day is a joint project of the Connecticut Library Association, the Connectucut State Library and the Connecticut Library Consortium. The aim is to encourage libraries all over CT to collect basic data-how many people use the library on a given day, how many people use computers, attend programs, etc. Connecticut's libraries are busier that ever these days, with people coming not only to check out books, but use computers, look for a job, or attend the many programs our libraries offer. All across the state, libraries are the cornerstones of their communities, places were people come together to visit, learn and share ideas.
