Library Concierge Project: Thank you!



Concierge Keys

It’s been a very productive year of presentations and tours!  We couldn’t have done it without all of our fabulous speakers and tour guides. CPAG would like to thank all library staff that presented and helped organize this year’s tours and sessions. We also want to thank all those who presented in the Program's early years too!

It was really great to have so many Library Directors present this year, including Mike Keller!  We have received a lot of positive and useful feedback and are thrilled about the interest and attendance at the sessions this past academic year.
