We were chosen to participate in ALA's Media Literacy @ Your Library prototyping project. As part of that program we are offering three public programs on news literacy. Our first was a lecture with Elizabeth Skewes (University of Colorado at Boulder's College of Media, Communication and Information) on Monday, Feb. 5, at 6:30 p.m.

Before we get into how to use "Arthur" to teach media literacy, we thought it might be nice to give you a little background on why our passion for information literacy programming in school libraries was re-energized and renewed.
