    Date: May 18, 2017
    Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM PDT
    Event Description:
    Today’s information-filled world can be challenging to navigate, but librarians are experienced in examining all types of information resources for authenticity, relevance, and authority. Join NOLS Librarians Danielle Gayman and Sarah Morrison at the Port Angeles Main Library of the North Olympic Library System (NOLS) for a 2-hour workshop on Media Literacy. The workshop will be held on Thursday, May 18 at 6pm. According to the Pew Research Center, a majority of US adults and youth are getting their news in real time from their social media feeds. How do you choose what to believe? Why can’t you trust that link, this video, an article shared by a friend or family member? What is “truthiness”? How do you identify bias? Media Literacy workshop attendees will learn how to examine and analyze their information sources, and leave more confident of their ability to find reliable, evidence-based information, and to avoid being “faked out” by false or fabricated news. For more information, contact Librarians Danielle or Sarah at 360.417.8500, ext. 7706, or send an email to Discover@nols.org.
