    This sounds wonderful and the line-up is great.  I'm sorry we weren't in on it.  Athens Regional Library in Georgia has a traua-informed approach to social workers in the library.

    Hi Valerie,

    These virtual forums are a way for libraries to learn from and share with their peers, so we would love to have you register as an attendee and share what your library has done!

    Hi Samantha,
    If we register for one, will we have access to all responses when it is all said and done?
    Kind thanks,
