I just wanted to let you know that I think your adult lecture series have been so informative! I loved the one from the “dog whisperer” last year and then the one I just attended about Dementia. I’ve learned so much useful information that I’ve passed onto my friends and family! Thanks again, and keep up the great work!
This is the best day at the library ever!
