Saddleback College library is joining across the state in participating in Snapshot Day on October 4. This event is to help show the importance of academic, public, and special libraries and library systems to the state of California.

Snapshot Day will capture data to create a compelling picture of library services in California. The results will show how many people use California’s libraries on any given day and will provide a critical tool for all to use.

The CLA will add the results collected to those of other libraries across California to show how libraries provide invaluable services to California citizens, .

Additionally, by holding Snapshot Day events, for which promotional materials such as poster or flier templates, graphics, bookmark templates, and sample press releases have been provided, libraries can also use the day as a public relations effort to showcase the library to the community.

The CLA has developed resources to make taking part in Snapshot Day as easy as possible. Their staff, and a team of librarians from all library types are on hand to help students plan and manage students’ Snapshot Day.
