|It’s hard to believe that it’s been very close to a year since a large cadre of staff and volunteers packed up the collection, shelving, and furniture at 5 Lunt Road to move everything into storage and a temporary Library space at Mason-Motz. But it has. For full information visit our online newsletter.|

Mary Lawrence – The Bianca Goddard Mystery Series and Tudor London
Join us as we welcome Mary Lawrence, author of the historical Bianca Goddard mysteries. The Bianca Goddard mysteries are a historical series set in the slums of London during the final days of Henry VIII’s reign. Lawrence will discuss her series and share a presentation of Tudor London and the history of the time. Lawrence grew up in Southern Indiana and attended Butler University. She earned a specialty degree in Cytotechnology from Indiana University then moved to Maine shortly thereafter. About twenty years ago Lawrence stumbled upon a book about alchemy and came up with the idea for a daughter of an alchemist who lived during the reign of Henry VIII. Thus, the Bianca Goddard Mysteries were born. Copies of her latest books in the series will be available for purchase and signing. This event is free and open to the public.

Fake News: Its Challenges, Consequences and Rise Presented by Martin GagnonWednesday, October 23 at 6:30 pm at Lunt Auditorium at OceanView
This brief session will provide participants with tips to look critically and analyze both digital, television, and print media resources. Through videos and slides, the session will examine the history of misinformation and the psychology of irrationality brought about by biases and social forces. This insightful presentation will also examine the role of technology in the creation and spread of “fake news” and suggest helpful resources to verify images and fact check news stories.
In 2018, Gagnon used the training and his past experiences to create a media literacy and “fake news” class at the Lewiston-Auburn Senior College along with a series of events at the library. Seeing the amount of interest and general concern for the implications and lack of civil discourse fueled by misinformation, Gagnon created a companion website. The site is non-partisan and takes no advertising and can be viewed at www.themediasavvycitizen.org
The Library will be closed on Tuesday, September 24 for Staff Development Day. See you on Wednesday at 12 noon.
