On today's episode, we're linking up the ongoing efforts of two librarians and finding common cause: the information connection! Librarians like Michelle Williamson (Adult Services) and Jasmine Parker (Youth/Teen Services) are equipping their patrons with the capability to be wise and savvy interpreters of the deluge of information streaming through their individual social feeds on a daily basis, and encouraging them to always ask more questions and be as prepared as possible to be participants in a democratic society. Significant and as vital as that sounds, it's just one of the many things that librarians (as well as teachers) are doing on a daily basis.
We're talking with Parker about programs that widen the perspectives of teen patrons and get them interested in asking more questions about the way the world works. Williamson, meanwhile, is talking about the second set of Information Literacy panel discussions that we have coming up soon, starting in April.
