Smile! You Can Make a Difference!

frances and wallyOn Tuesday, Oct. 14 the state’s libraries will host Wyoming Snapshot Day, an event highlighting the importance of libraries to the state. Libraries will collect photos, comments and usage numbers to illustrate their impact every day of the year.

Be sure to stop in at the Cody, Powell, or Meeteetse Library. You CAN make a difference. Let the state know how much YOUR library means to you!

“We’ve done this for several years now,” Susan Mark, Wyoming State Library statistics librarian said. “When we see the faces and hear what our patrons have to say, it really shows how important libraries are to our communities.” Multiply that by how much our libraries are used – public library circulation alone is nearly 5 million a year – and you can see the impact they have every day.”

Wyoming residents can participate in Snapshot Day by visiting their local library and providing their comments. Be sure to look at all the fun pictures on flickr —  https://secure.flickr.com/photos/wyomingsnapshot/

Wyoming Snapshot Day is a project of the Wyoming State Library (WSL) and the Wyoming Library Association.
