Utah libraries of all types – academic, public, school, special, and tribal – are encouraged to collect stories from patrons and photos of their activities to document the impact library services have every day on the lives of Utah residents.
Why participate on Snapshot Day?
Snapshot Day provides invaluable quotes and pictures of people using Utah libraries that can later be used to support advocacy efforts with local elected officials, school and college administrators, governing boards, donors, and the public.
How much work is it?
This effort can be as simple or elaborate as your library community needs. At a minimum, we recommend that you collect photos, comments, or both. If you want to do more, we recommend you hold special events over a period of time culminating with a grand celebration on Snapshot Day and through out your activities, you request user comments and take photographs.
What do I have to do?
Plan ahead! Take a look at the Instructions for Libraries, and customize the Forms, Logos & Flyers on this site. You do not have to use everything; just use what you need and what makes sense for your library and your community.
Where can I see results from previous Snapshot Days in Utah?
See the pictures submitted by participating libraries in years past.
Who is coordinating this advocacy effort?
Currently, there is nobody coordinating a statewide effort.
