You are spreading a new spirit of cooperation, encouraging us to join forces to preserve the rich cultural heritage of Hawaii. Finally, the ALA-SC would like to express our thanks for your contribution as a role model in our community. We are truly grateful for the chance to work and study with you, for you have shown us through your personal philosophy how one becomes a Super Librarian."
