    13. 19. What staff said ...
    14. 20. It has already helped me assist borrowers with questions about the Internet and the resources the Library is offering.
    15. 22. I looked at the whole process as a dare - if the rest of the staff could do this, so could I as a representative of the over-60 crowd!
    16. 24. The most eye-opening part of Learning 2.0 for me has been the variety of ways that people can engage with each other socially online.
    17. 26. # 23 Thing, AT LAST! – I didn’t think I could do it, but I worked hard and here I am.
    18. 28. Thank for increasing my knowledge in Technology. If it hadn't been for you and Learning 2.0- my knowledge of technology would still been in a very small box.
    19. 30. I feel like Cinderella who just finished her chores in time to go to the Ball. (But the chores were a learning experience and hold promise for the future.)
    20. 32. I want to thank all those who made this Learning experience possible. I hope I get to talk to you personally to tell you how exciting it was to go through the program.
    21. 33. Overall I thought this was a crazy good program, really easy, and really made me think.
    22. 35. It helps to have nice little incentives of course, but I think the true reward (whether or not we want to admit it) is that we're improving our minds
