Proofreaders for Conlang Exhibit in Cleveland?

I apologize if this is a little off-topic; however, I
am in need of the help of my conlanging comrades.

As some of you may remember, I am planning an exhibit
for the Cleveland Public Library on constructed
languages. I was wondering if anyone would be
interested in helping to proofread the text for it
before it gets printed out and displayed. I have
people here at the library that can proofread
grammar...but what I'm looking for is factual
proofreading (of course, if you want to point out
grammatical errors, too, that would be great). I'm
fairly certain of my facts, but I'm just unsure enough
that I'd like some of my colleagues in the community
to take a look. I don't expect anyone to proofread all
68 pages (yes, 68 pages), but if someone would want to
take a look at a certain exhibit case's text, that
would be greatly appreciated. Plus, you get an inside
preview of the exhibit. If anyone is interested, feel
free to email me personally off-list and let me know
what you're interested in looking at. I can send the
text as an MS Word Document attachment. I know the
exhibit will not please every conlanger, but I'm
hoping to spread the news about our art, craft, and
obsession to a wider audience. Thanks in advance to
anyone willing to take on this task.

The exhibit cases are (in order):
1) Introduction (with quotes and an introductory
2) Conlang Terms and "The Conlang Manifesto" (with
covers and captions for 4 books)
3) Conlanger's Inspiration: Languages & Linguistics
4) Early Conlangs & Universal Languages: From Ancient
Greece to 20th-Century America
5) The Shakespeare of Conlangs: J.R.R. Tolkien
6) International Conlangs: Esperanto & Other Auxiliary
7) The Warrior's Conlang: Klingon
8) Meet the Conlangers: The World-wide Community of
Language Creators
9) A Selection of Babel Texts
10) Conlangs in Fiction & Film: Beyond Elvish & Klingon
