I have been watching Samantha Brown’s Places to Love on PBS and have enjoyed it. It talks about local places. That got me thinking about local libraries.
I have wanted to visit the South Mountain Community Library on the campus of the South Mountain Community College. It is a joint use facility between the Maricopa Community College District and the Phoenix Public Library. I went there to get some work done (while listening to a podcast) and also looked around a little. It is a nice library. I like that it is a public and a community college library. I also printed from wifi in a public place for the first time. I also ate lunch there.
I also went to the Frank Talk on the Impact of Fake News in the Real World. It is sponsored by the Arizona Humanities. Jamie Bowen – ASU Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication presented the program. It is a timely topic with all the things going on right now. I enjoyed the program. He gave some information/history but also lead a group discussion. That was interesting and helpful.
