Plan to visit your local library on Snapshot Day

Make plans to show your support for the Bassfield & Prentiss Public Libraries on Snapshot Day.

“Snapshot Day is our day to shine and show our lawmakers the impact your local library makes during one day in the community,” said Library Branch Manager Jackie Miller.

Citizens are asked to visit the Prentiss Public Library or the Dr. Frank L. Leggett Public Library in Bassfield on July 22 and complete a short survey.

Participants will take the author poll at the library or online and choose their favorite Mississippi author.

They are also asked to leave a love note, (forms will be available) and telling why they love the library before having their picture made with the Snapshot Day selfie frame.

Pictures will be shared with the Mississippi Library Commission as part of the statewide campaign.

“Your participation will be greatly appreciated.”
