The Martins Ferry Public Library is joining all types of libraries across the state to participate in “Snapshot Day:  A Day in the Life of Ohio Libraries” during the week of October 8-12 to capture and share information about how important academic, public, school, and special libraries and library systems are to the state of Ohio.

The Martins Ferry Public Library will compile statistics, customer comments, photographs or video, and other details representing a typical day at the library.  The results collected and pictures taken at the library will be added to those of other libraries across the state to raise awareness about the important role of libraries in Ohio.

Libraries are more important than ever to our communities, and library usage is at record levels.  We want all the residents of Ohio, and particularly our Ohio lawmakers, to see what a typical day is like for an Ohio library.  Adequate state funding is vital to help libraries like ours maintain current programs and services. Reductions in funding make it difficult, and in some cases impossible, to provide new programs and services, purchase new materials, and support the delivery of materials to our patrons from other libraries. This ‘snapshot’ will help us communicate to lawmakers that their constituents, our patrons, rely on us for critical services.
