One Day In California Libraries

Snapshot Day data!

On a typical day over ONE MILLION Californians visit a library

The library is the one free community space that sustains democracy, levels the playing field, values the individual, nourishes creativity, opens young minds, builds community, supports families, builds technology skills and offers sanctuary—all free of charge to the user.

On California Library Snapshot Day:

1,012,563 Californians visited a library.

Library websites were accessed 1,223,887 times

770,831 items were checked out or renewed

Librarians answered 93,292 reference questions in person.

Librarians answered 16,577 reference questions by telephone, email, instant message, text message, mail and more!

169,707 people used a library computer.

2,170 programs were held for children, teens, adults and families. 62,354 people attended those programs

26,962 people received literacy tutoring, homework help, and information literacy instruction at a library.

No other organizations or agencies provide Californians with everything that libraries provide—and over one million Californians on one day in October proved it.
