Today, October 7th, is Snapshot Day at the Pollak Library — from 12:01am until 11:59pm!

We are compiling statistics as well as your comments, photos, and short mobile videos to chronicle “One Day in the Life of California Libraries” and to demonstrate how important libraries are to the state of California.

Help us out by showing your support!
