You filmed a YouTube video for Rohrbach Library. What am I talking about? I’m talking about SnapShot PA!
On Wednesday, Oct. 28, the Rohrbach Library will be participating in SnapShot-PA, a statewide initiative aimed at capturing the impact that Pennsylvania libraries have on their communities on a typical day. Patrons can stop by the library from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Oct. 28 to record a brief video telling us why they are in the library and how they use the library’s services and resources. Some of the videos will be posted to YouTube, and the results (statistics, photos, videos, and comments) from all participating libraries will be posted online on the SnapShot-PA Web site: http://snapshotpa.org. For more information, please contact professor Karen Wanamaker, Education Librarian, at ext. 3-4709.
