Chris Dorman has been working with the Public Library Innovation Exchange (PLIX), a project of the MIT Media Lab Digital Learning & Collaboration Studio and the Maine State Library is proud to announce she has been appointed as a PLIX Creative Learning Ambassador!

"This group shares our passion for hands-on creative learning programming and a keen desire to spread their love of what PLIX is doing. Together, we will build a network of library professionals who advocate for PLIX and creative learning in communities, library systems, and libraries across the United States. Ambassadors will take on a leadership role in local communities as well as online in our Community of Practice."
