Library Snapshot Day at Mentor Public Library

The concept for Library Snapshot Day began in New Jersey but has since spread to the rest of the country.

The idea is simple: tell the story of your library using photos from a single day.

Mentor Public Library held its Library Snapshot Day on Wednesday, Nov. 13. It was a busy day: story times, crafts and joint programs with the Lake County General Health District and the James A. Garfield National Historic Site.

But why am I writing about this when I have pictures?
Anyone who has been to our of our Tiddlywinks story times needs no introduction to either Ms. Mary or her puppet, Ben.
Speaking of story time, one of my favorite things to see at the library is people reading to their child or grandchild.
Mary Pelton, one of our reference librarians, helps a patron with a question.
Dave Lintern, a volunteer from the Garfield National Historic Site, talks about the siege of Chattanooga as part of the Major Battles of the Civil War series.
Our Reference and IT Department getting ready for International Games Day where teens competed with gamers from libraries all around the world.

Of course it snowed on Library Snapshot Day. This is Northeast Ohio.
