The W.I. Dykes Library at University of Houston-Downtown is joining libraries across the state during the month of October and participating in "Texas Library Snapshot Day" on Oct. 24. Every day, Texas libraries reach out to millions of Texans - students, adults, job-seekers, researchers, entrepreneurs, and countless others. Snapshot Day provides a way to capture the diversity of activities and learning made possible by libraries.

On Oct. 24, the UHD Library will compile statistics, customer comments, photographs, and other data chronicling a typical library day. The results collected at the library will be added to those of other libraries across Texas to show how libraries provide invaluable services to Texans.

At the UHD Library, students, faculty, staff, alumni, and members of the public come to use computers, study space, research and reference services, and a diverse collection of hardcopy and electronic books and journals.

Library Director Pat Ensor said, "Snapshot Day offers a great way to capture the use and value of the library and its resources to UHD students, faculty, and staff. They use it every day to research, study, and learn."

Supporters of the UHD Library are asked to drop by the library to share their thoughts about the library and participate in some of the day's activities. Texas Library Snapshot Day is a project of the Texas Library Association and the UHD W.I. Dykes Library.
