Library Snapshot Day

Have you been considering ways that you could be an advocate for Oregon’s libraries?  If so, volunteer to help launch Oregon’s first Library Snapshot Day.  Hannah Gascho Rempel is looking for people interested in joining an OLA task force to create a pilot version of Library Snapshot Day in Oregon later this spring.

Library Snapshot Day is an effort to gather data and pictures from all types of libraries across the state on a single day to illustrate the importance libraries have in our communities.  The data and pictures can be used for advocating to legislators, administrators and community members.  States across the country will be holding their own Library Snapshot Day this winter and spring.

For examples of what other states have done for Library Snapshot Day, check out these two resources:

To volunteer to help out with this task force contact Hannah Gascho Rempel at hannah.rempel@oregonstate.edu.
