I just saw the note that this entry was selected as one of the top five. So excited! Congrats to Jennifer - and thanks for initiating the concept. Congrats to Trevor - and everyone who worked on this - and thanks for your effort to expand the initial concept into a concrete project. I would like to stay in touch on project learning / outcomes. As you're thinking about next steps and how to scale up and out to other communities, libraries, or other anchor/partner institutions, we'd love to get the word out to our audiences (mostly public library staff in the US) and/or support in other ways.

So happy to see this work advancing through the process. I heard a representative from the Visa -Romania project speak at a digital inclusion conference a few years ago and was blown away by the way they talked about libraries as partners in their work. I thought It was a great example of public+private investment in an area where public+private interests align. Good luck developing these ideas.

exactly. where do people gather? where do they trust and connect with one another? those are the spaces we should be leveraging. i'd add faith based orgs to your list.
