 Fake news is a topic we hear a lot about, but is it as simple as figuring out what's fake and what's real? Ben Himmelfarb is a Librarian at White Plains Public Library who specializes in local history programming and adult services. Join Ben to learn some skills for determining what is true and how to analyze your information sources to make sure you are the best informed that you can be. In this participatory workshop, we will also discuss strategies for dealing with rapid news cycles, social media dynamics, and how the library can help if you are feeling overwhelmed.
