Media Literacy @ Your Library Opportunity

The  Media Literacy @ Your Library  is a pilot program that will train public library workers to help their adult patrons become better news consumers.  Five libraries will be selected.

The libraries will receive:

  • An intensive six-month experience that will include training and support for a three-person library team to develop and implement media literacy programming for adult patrons.
  • $1,500 for program-related expenses, such as travel, promotion and public programming costs.
  • In-person media literacy workshop training, to be held on Thursday, Oct. 19, 2017, in Chicago.
  • Two nights’ hotel lodging and some meals at the in-person workshop for three library representatives. (Note that travel costs to Chicago are at the library’s expense or must be paid from the $1,500 stipend.)
  • Communications support, access to a community of practice, and technical and programming support.
