2017 October is Information Literacy Month Celebration


EVALUATE: Separating Fact from Fiction in the Media Morass

On Wednesday, October 25, RILA’s Information Literacy Action Round Table celebrated the 5th annual “October is Information Literacy Month” proclamation in Rhode Island. We posted details about the event on our web site, as well as links to the presentations, resources, and lesson plans shared by our amazing presenters.


Specials thanks to the librarians who presented: Joanna M. Burkhardt, Laura Hooper, Sarah Hunicke, Alyssa Taft, and Jen Thomas. In her presentation, Joanna mused that it might be up to librarians to save the world. Based on the success of this program, librarians are ready for the challenge.



RILA Advocates for 

East Greenwich High School Library


The Rhode Island Library Association (RILA) is working with the School Librarians of Rhode Island (SLRI) and the Coalition of Library Advocates (COLA) to urge the East Greenwich Public School Department, the Superintendent and School Committee to hire a full-time credentialed school library media specialist for their high school. RILA has submitted an advocacy letter on behalf of this important cause.


Please stay tuned for updates and let us know your thoughts!
