I think this was some of the most useful library training I've had, as it was all about technology and a lot of fun. Thanks for all the time and effort it must have taken!

Congratulations to the entire Maud Marks staff. We ALL completed the 23 Things training. Sylvia, our branch librarian, encouraged us and provided the help we needed to persevere. Everyone stepped up and did what they could do to help those who had fallen behind because of vacation, college, or other distractions. Great job, Maud. We look forward to our next challenge. Right?
