The SCC Library is participating with libraries across the state in “Snapshot: One Day in the Life of California Libraries” on Wednesday, October 6th to show how important academic, public, school, and special libraries and library systems are to the state of California. Snapshot Day has been developed by the California Library Association (CLA).
On October 6th, the SCC Library will compile statistics, customer comments, photographs, and other data chronicling a typical library day. The results collected at SCC Library will be added to those of other libraries across California, to show how libraries provide valuable services to California citizens.
For more information, contact your local library or visit the CLA Snapshot Day page.Kim Bui-Burton, CLA President and Director of the Monterey Public Library, says, “I invite all California community members of any age to visit their library on this historic day and be a part of this first ever “snapshot” of California libraries. Every kind of library provides unique and irreplaceable services; we know this because in communities across the state library usage is rising, and demand is growing for books and other resources, knowledgeable staff assistance and computer/Internet access – despite budget cuts, reduced hours and programs. We believe this California libraries ‘snapshot’ will show the essential library services and life-changing experiences that California’s communities depend on, especially during these times of severe economic distress. We look forward to capturing this “day in the life of California libraries” to demonstrate to decision makers the extent that our patrons, customers and future leaders rely on California libraries for critical library services, resources and programs – now, more than ever.”
