New Philadelphia, Ohio - The Tuscarawas County Public Library System will host a program titled Don't Be Fooled by Fake News? on Tuesday, October 23rd at 6 p.m. at its Main Library.

The program will provide educational information on what fake news is, why it spreads so quickly and how we can be part of the solution that stops it.

"Fake news is a global issue," says Emerging Technology Associate Virginia Wright. "The good news is that readers will always remain the first line of defense against spreading bogus reports."

Those attending the program will learn ways to identify fake news, explore methods to think critically and learn how to separate fact from fiction. Wright will discuss simple tools and websites that can be used to determine whether the news you're reading and seeing on social media is real or fake before you share it.

The program is free to attend but registration is required due to limited seating. To register, visit the Tuscarawas County Public Library System's online event calendar at For more information, call 330-364-4474 ext. 101. The Main Library is located at 121 Fair Ave. NW in New Philadelphia.
