Founders Hall: Separating fact from fiction

In this new digital information age, almost anyone can publish anything on the Web. So when searching for information, how do you separate fact from fiction? For starters, come to our seminar, Finding Reliable and Trustworthy Information on the Internet, on Friday, Jan. 19, at 1 p.m. Dorothy Pawlowski and Mary Rindfleisch of the Ridgefield Library will tell you “the good, the bad and the ugly” about Internet searches.

“There is a lot of confusion out there,” says Pawlowski, “but the library has resources to help.”

She and Rindfleisch will describe those resources and explain how to use the library’s databases to navigate the Web and evaluate sources of information. They will also tell you how to access the library’s resources from both the library and from home.

More reliable than much of what you read online is the fun you’ll have at Founders Hall social events.

Join us on Friday, Jan. 12, at 2 p.m. for our Welcome to 2018 Tea, sponsored by Ridgefield RVNA. You can celebrate the New Year with the smooth sounds of the SKJ Jazz Trio, and then chat with old friends and new over cookies and tea.

On Jan. 25 at 5 p.m. enjoy a delicious dinner and a fun movie with fellow members. Thanks to sponsors Bethel Health Care, The Cascades and Dimitri’s Diner, the cost is just $8. Be sure to sign up by Jan. 19.
