Snapshot Day!

One Day in the Life of Maryland Libraries
Libraries all around Maryland have chosen Wednesday, October 5, 2011 as “Snapshot Day.” On this day, the Frederick Douglass Library (FDL) will record various statistics to create a snapshot of a day’s use of the FDL.
Visit the FDL on October 5 and be a part of “A Day in the Life of Libraries.” Help us show the incredible impact of our libraries. Let us know why the library is important to you and the UMES community. Share your story here or respond to a brief survey while you are at the library.
