Mary Cohen for CLA Board Director

Statement of Concerns

I recently attended a "Lead the Change" workshop and was inspired by many of the things I heard that day. In particular, the statement "we (libraries) create environments where people can change their own lives" really struck a chord in me and is now something I talk about when others ask me about libraries and why they are relevant in today's society. I am happy that the work I do on a daily basis contributes in some way to those peoples' lives.
