The Challenges of Fake News: Professional Perspectives
Human beings routinely seek factually correct and relevant information in politics, journalism, and everyday life. Unfortunately, the proliferation of media sources has brought in its wake the propagation of inaccurate information and contrived false news stories that are indiscriminately spread by means of social media.
As the source of many types of information for the Red Bank community, the Red Bank Public Library strives to be a beacon of truth that stands in favor of facts and provides reliable and valid material. However, many patrons regularly use its facilities to access publications and Web sites that have not been as rigorously fact-checked as published books.
This ‘fake news’ program is the Library’s way of helping patrons become savvy consumers of published information by becoming familiar with fact-checking methods. Check out the next session.
The 3rd Session will be on
December 6, 2017
Mr. Michael E. Gordon, a member of the Foundation Board of the Eisner Memorial Library, will moderate this series.

Let's Talk About Race
This monthly program of guest speakers, film and panel discussion seeks to promote dialogue about our racial divide past and present. The topic is challenging and may be uncomfortable at times but the goal is a respectful exchange of ideas, opinion, and experience that shapes our relationship with "the other".
