Lend an Ear: Free Webinar for Librarians

Do your patrons have a variety of backgrounds, cultures, literacy levels, and learning styles? Are they looking for information on managing money, credit & debt, recovering from identity theft, or avoiding fraud? You probably would love to get your hands on helpful information that’s clear, direct, and easy-to-use, right? Then tune in November 13 at 2 pm EST!

The Public Library Association and the FTC are teaming up to present a free webinar about reaching out to patrons  who have consumer questions and who need just basic information, plain and simple. Hear how the FTC partnered with the Center for Applied Linguistics to create Consumer.gov and its easy-to-use consumer resources. The site has tip sheets, short  videos, and audio read-alongs to share what someone needs to know and do on important consumer issues. These resources are ideal for people with challenges reading English, and are helpful for everyone, including those of us with too much to do and too little time. Find out how to use these free tools in your programs.
