Library Snapshot Day

Wednesday, October 31st, was designated by the Texas Library Association as Library Snapshot Day, a day during which libraries across the state gather data and photographs of a typical day in order to promote Texas libraries.  Here at Freeman, there were over 100 people in attendance for story times, computer classes, and English as a Second Language sessions, over 300 reference questions answered, and over 1,200 items checked out!  Not too shabby for a random day!  Take a look at just a few pictures of the day's activities here.

Congrats to Jill Wiess, this year's Adult Summer Reading Program winner at Clear Lake City-County Freeman Branch Library!  Jill was randomly chosen among Freeman's adult customers who completed the ASRP to receive a $30 Amazon gift card.  Jill is an avid reader and has participated in the summer reading program for the last two years.  Jill appreciated this year's more social approach for logging completed titles, which allowed those registered to share with others what they were reading.  Jill owns a Kindle Touch and has enjoyed and made plenty of use of our digital collection, as have many of our customers this summer.  No doubt she'll enjoy her ereader even more thanks to the Amazon gift card!  Congratulations again to you, Jill!
