Peter Haxton and the other fine folks at the State Library of Kansas have put together Snapshot Day – capturing a day in the life of a library. Today, libraries across the state will compile statistics, customer comments, photographs and other data chronicling a typical library day, including videos! Many of the #23thingsks lessons are being used today. I wonder if we are participating? Should I try counting reference calls and door counts? Probably wouldn’t help the cause much 😉
The goal of snapshot day is to answer these vital questions:
- How many times the library helped someone work on a resume?
- How many times the library helped someone apply for a job online?
- How many students the library helped with an assignment or an online database?
- How many story hours the library offered – to how many attendees?
- How many people came through the library’s doors?
Mandy at the Corning City Library is participating – I hope others participate, too!
John, our friend from #kohakansas and the Independence Public Library, created this video for the program. I like how they manage book clubs:
