Hello, Mike-


I am the outreach coordinator for WTBBL, and we have Tristen Breitenfeldt from DSB working with us for a five week internship.  Could you please send the following announcement to the NFBW listserv announcing the availability of training for our new Patron Computer Station?  We sent it to the WTBBL listserv of 700 and posted it on our website last week.
