Delia Library hosts snapshot day

    The Delia Library is joining public libraries across the province in “Snapshot Day 2011” in October to show how important public libraries and library systems are to the residents and communities of Alberta.
    On October 28 the Delia Library will compile statistics, customer comments, photographs and other data chronicling a typical library day. The results at the Delia Library will be added to those of public libraries across Alberta to show how libraries provide invaluable services.
    The concept for Snapshot Day originated with the New Jersey State Library Association, and has spread throughout the U.S. and Canada. The purpose of the day is to create a ‘snapshot’ of what happens in a library in a single day, to help libraries and library advocates demonstrate how the people who visit the library and the communities in which they live are impacted by the library.  
    Online visitors to the library can also participate; the library website will include a short 2-question survey, and you can even upload your own snapshot to our Flickr group at: You can also keep track of Snapshot Day events on Twitter with hashtag #SnapshotDay2011.
