Just getting my feet wet with LMDB. Is it possible for multiple

No.  Only one write transaction can be active at a time,
and each transaction belongs to one thread.  See lmdb.h.

lmdb does that, so you don't need to.

Except if you use the MDB_NOLOCK flag.  Then I think you can
use a transaction across threads.  But there must still be only
one write transaction, and you must enusre that and manage
concurrency and synchronization between threads yourself.
Likely not what you want, in particular as an LMDB beginner.
