I completely forgot about the drop-in sessions. Were they recorded for viewing?

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!
