Here’s What is Being Said about Cornucopia of Rhode Island and our October 2013 Annual Mini Conference

You guys always do an excellent program! I look forward to them every year.

The conference was great! Lots if issues to think about.

Thank you so much for organizing this event. I thought it was very well done - kudos to you and your entire team! Looking forward to your next conference...

Thank you for having me, the experience and information I received has opened my eyes to things unimaginable. I praise CORI for the work you do. Thank you again.

Thank you for hosting the event!

I was very pleased that I attended. There were other conferences going on this past week on slavery at Brown as well. However, I considered it very important that "More Than Slavery" brought up possible opportunities for changing the curriculum in RI to make our educational system more inclusive of the history of African Americans and other people of color. This will benefit our young people (and all of us). Thanks again for organizing this conference.

Thank YOU for putting on such a wonderful conference and providing a great networking opportunity.

I had a great time meeting old friends and making new ones too. Great job to all who put the conference together.

I am so glad to have attended. I learned so much -- both facts and feelings. My thanks to you and Cornucopia for your immense contribution to the library world.

I totally enjoyed the conference!

Thank you so much for the invitation, I learned so much and would love for you to keep me informed of any future conferences/events.

I enjoyed the conference, and seeing some people I haven't in years and years. I made notes to share with those who couldn't attend.

Thank you very much for the invitation! Everyone we spoke with seemed very receptive to what we had to offer, and I hope that you keep us in mind when your next conference approaches.
