“I have never seen more enthusiasm from CCPL employees. You struck a cord with them and I knew that the universal response was overwhelming positive. Many staff members came up to me after the program to thank me for bringing you here to speak with them. Many more wanted to know when you would be coming back.

Thank you very much for making a difference. I think that people sometimes come to such presentations with a jaded attitude. It takes something very special to shake them out of this sort of lethargy. You achieved that and much more in your short time with us.”
