Do you enjoy gathering information, but are unsure of how reliable the sources are? Join the Montclair Public Library (MPL) on Monday, April 18 for a very informative workshop that you won’t want to miss! MPL is located at 50 South Fullerton Ave. and the event will take place from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the main library.

Today, everyone is expected to be up to speed in the internet world, especially with searching techniques. By attending MPL’s instructional workshop, you’ll learn how to become a better searcher. Don’t let information overload discourage you from learning and enhancing your abilities of obtaining new information for school, work or personal matters. You’ll learn new tricks such as how to identify and evaluate sources as well as compile information in a clean and orderly way.

“It is easy to drown in the sea of information found online, that is why it is critical to be information literate. This class is intended to help our community become better information searchers, ones that can determine the validity of sources found on the web and know how to turn information into knowledge,” said John Daquino, Information Specialist at Montclair Public Library.

Keep an eye out for more upcoming April instructional workshops, such as Protecting Your Privacy and Making Informed Financial Decisions. The last workshop will highlight Money Smart Week, which is a public awareness campaign assisting consumers on how to better manage one’s finances. This workshop will better assist society in hopefully more ways than one. Money Smart Week events run from April 23 through 30.
