My 5-year old daughter and my ten year old god-daughter read aloud to Jasper, a Portuguese water dog, and to Nicky, a sweet and gentle golden Retriever. They all had a good time. I think the program is fantastic. My daughter read three books and hugged Nicky. Thank you and the dogs.
Very Good; experienced speaker.
Great; suggesting advanced class
It was a wonderful event. I just moved here and this was my first visit to the library. What a treat! Thank you.
My son and I really enjoyed it, we both learned something and we look forward to attending future events! I only wish there was more there, perhaps in the future you could combine with other activities to make it a larger event. A couple ideas, library hack-a-thon or a mini-maker fare. Again, we will be back I look forward to the event getting bigger and bigger!
Nice job! Great speaker, lunch, and interactive tables. Thank you!
Nice place to share poetry. Pretty eclectic group. I appreciate that I have a place to read poetry I value and read poetry I've written out loud. It's an accepting and low-pressure group as well. And who can beat the Poe room?
I now know what fiscal sponsorship is all about .
It was very helpful information provided and I made some needed connections.
Ideas presented were helpful to me dealing with my family photos. I plan to attend other meetings. Arthur
