Finally, the email I meant to send Tuesday. 🌞 The Maine State Library would like feedback on ARPA funding priorities for the Maine library community.
I will be filling one out and I believe Jane will as well.
All feedback is necessary, valued and welcomed!

We are happy to receive multiple responses from various staff at all libraries.
The survey will be open until Saturday, May 8 and will close that day at 6 pm.
Prior to responding to the survey, we encourage you to review the ARAP PowerPoint< https://www.maine.gov/msl/libs/grant_projects/documents/ARPALSTAFundsPresentation-April132021.pdf>,
