Richmond presentation to offer tips on recognizing fake news


The Richmond Public Library and the Friends of the Richmond Public Library invite the community to attend a free media literacy program, “Libraries in the Age of Disinformation,” in Richmond City Council Chambers on Thursday, March 14, at 6 p.m. 

Robert Rogers, a Richmond resident, veteran journalist, executive policy advisor and district coordinator for Contra Costa County Supervisor John Gioia’s office, will present on the topic. His will aim to empower attendees to understand the difference between truth and disinformation in modern times.

“In this presidential and state election cycle, it is a challenge to determine if information read through databases, social media, books, television, and artificial intelligence is factual,” Library officials said.

Rogers’ presentation will be followed by a Question & Answer session. Light refreshments before the presentation will be provided. 

This program is open to adults, young adults, and teens.  For more information call (510) 620-5516 or visit
