  • 5. Our Experiences • Many students misunderstood our sign, which was a good thing. Many come looking for a Library, but what they found was a Librarian. • We were surprised how many students came looking and wanted a Library. • They were disappointed with the lack of a Library. • Although, we did not have any books, we showed them Databases and E-Books that are better than Google and Wikipedia.
