Longmont Public Media (LPM) will hold its first annual Membership Drive designed to engage and educate local residents about their local media makerspace starting September 1, 2022 to September 15, 2022.

“We have an incredible and talented community of content creators, editors, videographers, photographers, and more here at Longmont Public Media. Everyone is willing to teach, help another out, and assist in content creation, whether it’s podcasts, videos, live streams, and more,” Angeles said.
