TEXAS LIBRARY SNAPSHOT DAY

Tuesday, April 27 we will be celebrating Texas Library Snapshot Day at La Porte Community Library. All over Texas libraries are asked to devote one day during the week of April 26- May 7 to compiling statistics on how their communities use their libraries. We have chosen this Tuesday. We will be logging how many people come through our doors, how many programs we hold and their attendance numbers, how busy our computers are and a host of other kinds of information.

So drop by and help us show how integral your library is to you.
