misc_none 6:30 PM  -  8:00 PM Fake News: Can You Spot It? Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

What is fake news, and how do we stop ourselves from falling for it? In this presentation, you’ll learn strategies for evaluating the news, so you can stop the fake stuff in its tracks.

The presenters will begin by defining “fake news” on a spectrum. There is a difference between actual fake news, misleading news, biased news, and (at the other end of the spectrum entirely) news that simply challenges a held belief. Next, the presenters will explore the concept of confirmation bias. To differentiate between what is true and false online, we must evaluate ourselves (our motives, our perspectives, our interests) just as we evaluate the news sources.

This program is especially important now that social media has made every information consumer into an information producer. It is our habit, when a piece of news makes us feel strongly, to share that piece of news with others. Given that, when we improve our abilities to determine news quality we do not just help ourselves; we help others too, as we let dubious news die instead of adding fuel to a false fire.

This program is a collaboration between the Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) Journalism department and Reference and Instruction librarians at CCSU’s Elihu Burritt Library.

Presenters:
Theodora Ruhs, Professor of Journalism
Martha Kruy, Reference, Instruction and Assessment Librarian
Briana McGuckin, Reference and Instruction Librarian
Susan Slaga-Metivier, Head of the Reference and Instruction Department, Elihu Burritt Library

misc_none 9:30 AM  -  12:30 PM Etsy Entrepreneurs Craft Fair Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Stop by the Community Room to purchase handmade items from the artists in-person.

Etsy, a leader in e-commerce for creative entrepreneurs, is an online buyer and seller community similar to eBay except it focuses on hand-crafted or vintage goods. Most products fall into the category of arts, crafts, jewelry, paper-goods, housewares, skin care products, candles, and artisan candies or baked goods.

In the fall of 2016 and the spring of 2017, Wallingford Public Library partnered with Etsy to offer free classes to help craft makers establish an online business selling their products to a wider market.  

Our Craft Entrepreneurship classes were taught by Libby Hitchcock, a successful online craft seller who coached and supported participants through every aspect of setting up their online shops. Libby shared best practices on topics that impact new sellers most, including time management, branding, pricing, shipping, and photography. In these 5 week courses, a total of 32 participants gained the skills to open an Etsy shop and sustain and grow a business.

While the artists’ items are always available online via their new etsy shops, a group of participants from this class is pleased to bring you an in-person shopping experience this summer. Please join us on August 26th from 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. in the Wallingford Library Community room to meet the artists, sample their goods, and purchase unique hand-crafted items.

A small selection of participants’ products will be on display in the library’s front cases in July and August.

lib_sherlock_holmes.GIF 3:00 PM  -  4:15 PM Mystery Book Group: Let's Kill All the Lawyers Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

"The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers" is one of the few memorable lines from Shakespeare's Henry the Sixth, Part 2, uttered by Dick the butcher, a character no one remembers. In this series, we won't kill any lawyers, but we'll meet a few of them who act as detectives in some highly regarded series.

This month: Client Privilege [1990] by William Tapply
Boston-based lawyer-sleuth Brady Coyne suspects his old friend Judge Chester Y. Popowski is responsible when a man who had blackmailed the judge is murdered.

This Book Group is moderated by Carole Shmurak, author of 11 books and Professor Emerita at Central Connecticut State University.

"The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers" is one of the few memorable lines from Shakespeare's Henry the Sixth, Part 2, uttered by Dick the butcher, a character no one remembers. In this series, we won't kill any lawyers, but we'll meet a few of them who act as detectives in some highly regarded series.

This month: The Deadhouse  [2001] by Linda Fairstein
Assistant D.A. Alexandra Cooper becomes involved in the investigation into the murder of Manhattan political science professor Lola Dakota, a crime that may have ties to the disappearance of a student eight years before and whose only clue lies in "The Deadhouse," the Roosevelt Island site where smallpox patients were sent to die in the nineteenth century.

This Book Club is moderated by Carole Shmurak, author of 11 books and Professor Emerita at Central Connecticut State University.

misc_none 10:00 AM  -  12:00 PM The Long and Fascinating History of Toilets Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Contrary to popular belief, Thomas Crapper did not invent the toilet. But who did? Better yet, when did people first start using toilets? And were they anything like the toilets we know today?

Presenter Kimberly Worsham will explore the long and fascinating history of toilets, from ancient Mesopotamia to today. We will walk through the not-so-short history and learn things like: why we should be grateful for Queen Elizabeth I, how toilets have been useful in wars, and the best reasons to visit Japan and Malaysia.

We will also learn about how even in current times, toilets are not so common as we often think they are, why that is is, and what is being done about it - from Cambodia to San Francisco. Of course, we will also tastefully touch on how you can better your toilet experience in your own home and on the road. The class will be partly interactive, so bring all of your most curious questions and taboo tales.

Kimberly Worsham is a water & sanitation (WASH) specialist in the development industry. She discovered a passion for toilets early as a child who always needed to inspect restaraunt facilities, but was reminded of that love while consulting in India, and has continued her love by working on it in Australia and Cambodia. She's also a board member for the water organization NYC H2O. In different lives, she has worked in local government, corporate marketing, and even taught math in Rwanda. She received her MPA and B.Sc in business at NYU, and a Masters in Integrated Water Management from the University of Queensland as an International WaterCentre Scholar.

In this series, we won't kill any lawyers, but we'll meet a few of them who act as detectives in some highly regarded series.

This month: Open and Shut [2002] by David Rosenfelt
Whether dueling with new forensics or the local old boys' network, irreverent defense attorney Andy Carpenter always leaves them awed with his biting wit and winning fourth-quarter game plan. But Andy prefers the company of his best friend, Tara, to the people he encounters in the courtroom. Tara, a golden retriever, is clearly smarter than half the lawyers who clog the courts of Passaic County. However, just as it seems Andy has everything figured out, his dad, New Jersey's legendary ex-D.A., drops dead in front of him at a game in Yankee Stadium. The shocks pile on as he discovers his dad left him with two unexpected legacies: a fortune of $22 million that Andy never knew existed . . . and a murder case with enough racial tinder to burn down City Hall. Struggling to serve justice and bring honor to his father, Andy must dig up some explosive political skeletons-and an astonishing family secret that can close his case (and his mouth) for good.

lib_sherlock_holmes.GIF 3:00 PM  -  4:15 PM Mystery Book Group: Let's Kill All the Lawyers Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

"The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers" is one of the few memorable lines from Shakespeare's Henry the Sixth, Part 2, uttered by Dick the butcher, a character no one remembers. In this series, we won't kill any lawyers, but we'll meet a few of them who act as detectives in some highly regarded series.

This month: The Lincoln Lawyer [2005] by Michael Connelly
Representing some unsavory characters in his work as a defense lawyer, Mickey Haller takes on his first high-paying and possibly innocent client in years, but finds the case complicated by events that suggest a particularly evil perpetrator.

This Book Club is moderated by Carole Shmurak, author of 11 books and Professor Emerita at Central Connecticut State University.
