    Feedback from previous participants:

    'Was just so nice to listen to people so knowledgeable with real solutions as I just don’t have time to do all that research on top of my job.'

    'I have been inspired to think about how I can improve my library and what is important in there.'

    'It was very useful discussing with other schools what their library looked like and included as it made me reflect on our library and what my next steps should be.'
