OCC Library can picture ‘Snapshot Day’

       Be advised, Old Colorado City library patrons - if you go there Saturday, April 16, make sure you're looking sharp, because your image might be recorded for posterity.
       As part of National Library Week, the Old Town branch has set aside April 16 for Snapshot Day, in which the staff will be clicking still shots and shooting video of those who come to the building. But people will be asked for their permission before cameras are turned on them, elaborated Old Colorado City Branch Manager Jocelyne Sansing.
       Later, the digital images will be shown on a flat screen monitor by the checkout station in the library. Plans are not finalized just yet for the video footage that will be shot, she said.
       In addition to photos and films, the library is doing its best to attract people April 16. Other activities will be:
  • A Friends of the Library book sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • A member of the Pikes Peak Library District board of trustees and a PPLD staff member, on hand from 2 to 4 p.m.
  • A teen art display.
  • An all-day poetry opportunity, in which people can write poems and use twisties to tie them to a tree outside.
