~Virginia DeMumbrun, White Lake Community Library~

Our bat expert kept the audience captivated with her interesting facts and friendly personality. She kept even the youngest listeners engaged while managing the large crowd and live bats with equal ease. The staff at OBC were easy to work with and professional.
