White Springs Library Snapshot Day

Jasper — Editors note: The Florida Library Association celebrated their 4th Annual Florida Library Snapshot Day during the week of Jan. 20-24. All three public libraries in Hamilton County - Jennings, Jasper and White Springs - held special events on different days of the week. The Jasper News is showcasing each library’s events in a weekly series. This week we are featuring White Springs Public Library, the final one in the series.

White Springs Public Library

On Thursday, Jan. 23, White Springs Public Library joined other libraries across the state of Florida, taking pictures and collecting statistics and patron’s comments to illustrate how Floridians are utilizing their libraries, as part of the Florida Library Association’s 4th Annual Library Snapshot Day.

Library Manager Tracy Woodard was out of town on a family emergency, however, library aide Mary Lou Bullard took the bull by the horns and made certain the day’s events went off without a hitch. Events scheduled for the day were Preschool Storytime at 10:30 a.m., Fun Day Watercolor Monsters at 3 p.m. and Homework Help at 3:30 p.m.

Fun Day with watercolor painting and drawing lessons drew a tableful of eager minds, and at least one parent, anxious to learn something new.

David Law, who teaches at South Hamilton Elementary, was on hand at 3:30 p.m. to help tutor two after school students with their homework, easily balancing his time and attention between the two young men.

The FLA, in partnership with the Division of Library and Information Services, will be collecting the results from all the participating libraries from the Florida Library Snapshot Day event and posting them online at for everyone to enjoy.

One library’s pictures and statistics may be small, but when you combine the results from all the libraries in the state it makes quite an impact.
