We are overwhelmed with messages from politicians, news sources and other media. Learn to distinguish truth from fiction using critical thinking strategies. The workshop uses real world examples of political ads, news headlines, logical fallacies, graphs / charts, the effect of word choice in messaging, statistical data and other types of information in a “what do you see here? / what is missing?” type of format. The last part is about finding accurate information. The goal is to help people become their own “factchecker”. Donna L Cohen, MEd, MLIS Teacher and Librarian

(Adults & ages 6+) Welcome to the infinite world of Origami! In Japanese, ori- means “to fold” and -gami means “paper”.
