Bendable Maine Meetings Announcement

The Drucker team will be coming back to Maine during the week of October 18-22 to reveal the Bendable Maine web portal designs and discuss development of the platform, ask for your input and also update everyone on their progress in hiring the Bendable Maine fellows.

Please join the Maine State Library and the Drucker Institute at any of the four (4) in-person sessions.
We do have a special request: As we start to build our stakeholder network, we need your help! Please reach out to others in your community and bring two or three non-library partners with you to a meeting. These might be local educators, employers, nonprofit leaders or government officials-anyone you think would benefit from learning more about Bendable Maine and might like to get involved as a user of the system, a content provider or both.
For those who can't attend in-person, the option to come to a Zoom session (or two) the following week, covering the same material will be made available.
Come see the proposed look of the Bendable Maine portal and provide your feedback and opinions!
