This was a great program and I hope to implement a similar program at my library, South Holland Public Library. It is a way for our patrons to participate in creating the history of their community while adding books to our collections that are reflective of them individually. Really a wonderful idea!

The requirement meeting yesterday had a great turn out! It was fun to meet new members and play the Time Travel Jeopardy game.

Thoroughly enjoyed it! It was informational and interesting. We felt very welcome, and I'm so glad we were able to participate.

This event was okay, the folks were nice, but it was poorly attended. What I'm really dispapointed in is parent weekend, which offered so little opportunity to really get a sense of the program, academic and otherwise. And I didn't meet one faculty member. Coming from NY, it is too difficult to get there on Friday, so there should be some opportunity on the weekend to meet faculty.
