Can't Attend? Watch us live through Zoom!

This month's meeting will available remotely from the following Zoom link. We are still perfecting this capability so please consider this before deciding to connect remotely.

If you have not used Zoom before, it is recommended that you visit the link well before the meeting time so that you can download the Zoom App on to your phone or computer. Also if you sign in before the meeting begins (shortly after 7pm) , Lynn may be able to assist with troubleshooting any connection/sound difficulties you may experience but once the meeting begins, you are on your own.

If you would like to test in advance of the Tuesday meeting, you can email with "MNPS Zoom Meeting" in the title of your email. Also if you attended last months meeting and connected to the library Wifi on your phone, it will likely be helpful to have your phone "forget" that connection or put your phone in airplane mode during the presentation so that your phone is not competing for the bandwidth that will improve the quality of the experience for our remote meeting participants.
