“This session was AWESOME! I came away with a ton of great programs that I know we can easily implement at my library.”
“I’ve been wanting to have something similar for my own library for a while, and the presenters made the whole process seem more manageable and doable than I had thought. “
“The presenter definitely knew her stuff, in terms of presenting the material and answering questions, and I came away feeling very excited and inspired.”
