We were chosen to participate in ALA's Media Literacy @ Your Library prototyping project. As part of that program we are offering three public programs on news literacy. Our first was a lecture with Elizabeth Skewes (University of Colorado at Boulder's College of Media, Communication and Information) on Monday, Feb. 5, at 6:30 p.m.
Using these slides, Skewes talked about news literacy and fake news, gave a historical perspective of this issue, and discussed how to proceed as a news consumer in this changing landscape.
Estes Valley Library asked a local journalism professor to help patrons spot fake news.
