We call it “Information Literacy”

Wondering if things you’re hearing and reading these days are real or “fake”? (or as I like to call the “fake” things, “propaganda.”) Look no further than your local library.

We have always helped our users to evaluate the material they are reading and hearing. We call this Information Literacy.

I know you will want to read more about this in Can Librarians Help Solve the Fake News Problem? from PBS.org. (Spoiler alert: the answer is YES! But you have to do some of the work yourself, too.)
