Cochrane Public Library recently released their fall program! How exciting. You’ll never guess who’s making an appearance… That’s right, I’m ecstatic to announce I will be collaborating with the library on some great events, see the list below.


The team at Cochrane Public Library have been incredible to plan with. Amazingly creative, enthusiastic, and engaged. They know their community and work tirelessly to deliver excellent services. Check out all the other amazing programs on the library’s Fall Program PDF or on their events calendar.
