Thanks to Melissa Hasbrouk and Laura Nawrocik of Mercer County Library, and Jennifer Worringer, also of Mercer County Library, who shared ListenNJ and Playaways with us!

I will post more about the meeting and about the upcoming meetings, as well as about how I blogged this photo directly from within flickr! ;-)
