Hi Nicole.  If you come in Second Life you will have to pay also. You will also need to be in OPAL to hear the audio. If you don't pay to attend for Second Life, people may be able to attend, but will not hear the audio since they will need a password to get into OPAL. I know this is confusing. I am sorry. I hope this explains it. Lori

I'm a little confused. You say Join online or in SL. Does that mean if you come into the library 2.0 on second life you don't have to pay? How will you know how paid. Will it be the same event in both places?

I'm just a little lost :)
