Learn How to Spot Fake News at the Easton Library

In 2016, the Oxford Dictionary’s word of the year was “post-truth.”  It seems fake news is everywhere these days—which is why information literacy and media literacy are more important than ever.   On Thursday, October 26, at 6:30 p.m., in the Easton branch of the Talbot County Free Library, Ryan O’Grady—a librarian with the Enoch Pratt Free Library, Maryland State Library Resource Center—will talk about the role, value, and power of information. This program will provide you with strategies for evaluating information sources and spotting fake news.

O’Grady serves as the Deputy Manager in the State Library Resource Center at the Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore.  His background centers on a combination of teaching, technology, media, and library experience.  Ryan holds Master’s Degrees in Instructional Technology from Towson University and in Library and Information Science from the University of Maryland. Ryan’s role at Enoch Pratt allows him to work with a little bit of everything—from making connections with patrons to giving presentations at libraries across Maryland.

All library programs are free and open to the public.  Patrons do not need to pre-register to attend this lecture.  For more information, please call the library at 410-822-1626, or visit www.tcfl.org.
