14 What Participants Say… “I love this format. It’s the first time I’ve participated in something like this. Short, sweet and to the point!” “I really enjoyed the interactive team- choosing activity. There should be more webinars like this!” “This is the best run, most organized Internet education I've ever been part of. And the content and slides are A-1.” “… I’ve used some of the pieces already [from this training] in conversations with community members and potential partners.” “I’ve taken my share of courses and most have not been as interesting as this one.”

15 What Trustees/Friends Say… “I enjoyed getting feedback from my facilitator, hearing what resources other participants knew about, and leaving the training with a clear action plan.” “My confidence to begin advocacy work is now higher.” “[Six months after taking the training], we have acquired more and more of the community.…They are outspoken to the leaders of the city, and they are quite willing to put their dollars and time into their library. " “As a library trustee, I enjoyed working with my library director throughout this training.”
