Linton library did a great job preparing for meeting

To the Editor:

Generations, a partner with Vincennes University, is hosting a three-part online conference called "Creating Aging-Friendly Communities" at the Linton Public Library.

It is especially appropriate that this conference is being hosted in our area since Linton is currently working on a project with Generations that focuses on developing a "Neighborhood Naturally Occurring Retirement Community" in our town.

I was asked to locate a meeting room that would accommodate a group and also have the technical equipment that was needed for such a seminar. Not hesitating, I contacted Shelley Williams at the Linton Public Library, I secured the dates, took her specifications of the equipment needed and we were off and running.

The first teleconference was Feb. 20 and we arrived at the library in enough time to help set up the media room and take care of last minute details. We were pleasantly surprised to find the Linton Library staff had everything ready for us. All we had to do is come in and sit down.

I would like to thank Shelley and her staff for such a professional way of meeting our needs; it is great to partner with such a great group.
