You may not have known it, but you were being counted at the Aldine Library on Tuesday, May 4th, 2010, as part of Texas Library Snapshot Day.
Presented in partnership between the Texas Library Association and the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, Texas Library Snapshot Day runs April 26th through May 7th, 2010. Its purpose is to provide a way for libraries of all types across Texas to show what happens in a single day in their libraries.
Aldine Library staff counted the number of people who walked through the library doors as well as the number of reference questions asked by customers. Computers recorded the number of materials checked out. A "snapshot" of a day in the life of the Aldine Library was made.
