 Jared Richards graduated from Emporia State University with his MLIS in 2016, and he has been an Adult Services librarian at Manhattan Public Library for a year and a half.  Jared is in charge of technology classes, workshops, and drop-ins, where the goal is to not only introduce people to new technology but also make them comfortable using it.

 “The recent focus on fake news and alternative facts has highlighted the importance of media and information literacy.  Knowing when information is needed, where to find it, and how to evaluate it are necessary skills in our modern, information-saturated world, and libraries are perfectly positioned to help develop these skills in our patrons.”

Jared will do a presentation on  
Fake News and Alternative Facts:  The Importance of Media and Information Literacy.
