Snap a Picture at the Library

When you head out to the library next week, don’t forget the camera! Monday, April 7 is Library Snapshot Day at all Cambridge Public Library branches.

Document what you love about your library with a selfie in the stacks and share it on Facebook or Twitter (@cambridgepl) with the #snapmass14 hashtag.

Strike a pose with your library card at the check-out desk, express your excitement browsing the new fiction, or show your studious side doing homework with friends in the teen room. You can even get a picture taken at one of the pop-up photo studios at the Cambridge libraries.

Snapshot Days help libraries collect data and photos that demonstrate the value of libraries and raise public awareness that libraries are busier than ever. There are always great things happening at the library! For more information on how you can get involved with the Friends and help support our Cambridge libraries, click here.
