On, Thursday April 12, both the Robbins and Fox Libraries will join libraries across the Commonwealth and the nation to provide a “snapshot” of what happens in a day in the life of libraries. How many books are checked out? How many people receive help finding a job? Doing their taxes? Doing their homework? During Snapshot Day, libraries will collect data and photos that help demonstrate the value of libraries and raise public awareness that libraries are busier than ever.
Everyone can participate in this second annual event: all you need to do is visit either the Robbins or Fox Libraries on Thursday, April 12! Come by and pick up a book or movie, use the Internet, or participate in the Thursday morning Singalong at the Fox. On Library Snapshot Day, the Robbins Library is open from 1:00 pm to 9:00 pm while the Fox Library is open from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
New this year is online participation. Patrons can go to mass.gov/libraries and post comments about the ways they use the library. “With so many people using our online resources, we wanted to include them in the fun.” Last year residents downloaded more than 9 million articles from trusted library resources.
So whether you can participate in person or online, join us on Thursday and be counted!
