Greetings EDGE Readers!
Thanks to all of you who attended our UFO program Wednesday night; we had a great group. Thanks, especially, to those of you who shared your personal experiences. If you didn't have a chance to do it after the program, you can submit your personal experience in written form on both the MUFON and the Cleveland Ufology Project websites. I spoke to Tom after the program and he suggests submitting it to the MUFON website, which will get it into the national database and the Cleveland Ufology Project will also have access to it.
I still have a few of the bibliographies, I put together, in the plastic holders on the end cap near the 100s dewey area. If you don't know where that is, ask at one of the public service desks and a staff member will show you.

If you didn't turn in your evaluation sheet, I'm still interested in your input. If you took the form home with you, fill it out and turn it in the next time you're in the library. If you didn't take a copy with you you can email me at Ilona.Miklos@westlakelibrary.org with anything you would like to say about the program: what you liked about it, how it could be improved...
We're also interested in your suggestions for future programming on any topic. I promise to get them to the right people.
In addition, if you're interested in being notified of future programs by email, you can submit your email address to be added to our list.
