Library Snapshot Day

Event Date(s)

The Volusia County Public Library system’s 12 library branches are participating in Library Snapshot Day, Feb. 14, by collecting statistics, comments and photographs from a typical day, showing how patrons are using their libraries.  

“We invite residents to stop by to use computers, check out materials, attend a program, visit with library staff, and share their thoughts,” said Activity Project Manager Karen Poulsen. “By being a part of Library Snapshot Day, they can help us demonstrate the profound impact our libraries have on our community.”

During last year’s snapshot day, 8,733 people visited a Volusia County public library and checked out 9,213 items. Reference librarians answered 1,133 questions, and staff issued 69 library cards. Other findings include:

  • 1,237 patrons used public-use computers, and 248 were taught computer skills.
  • 302 children, 250 adults and 106 young adults attended programs
  • 673 patrons downloaded audiobooks and e-books while 150 songs were downloaded.
  • 462 songs were streamed, 63 patrons downloaded/streamed songs and 14 movies were streamed.
  • 34 magazines were downloaded
