Adding to the incoming tsunami of delivery bags:
Maine InfoNet is waiting for delivery of two sets of bags (totaling over
900 bags!) that have been ordered on behalf of the MILS group of libraries
and the URSUS libraries. These will be a mix of large and medium bags.

Once they've arrived we'll start shipping them out to libraries through
delivery.

-James
