Science and Philosophy Seminar of the Eastern Shore of Virginia has scheduled a seminar, “The Equalizer: The Public Librarian as Superhero.” The free 90-minute seminar will be held at 12:30 p.m. on Friday, October 21 in the Lecture Hall of the Eastern Shore Community College, 29300 Lankford Hwy, Melfa, VA 23410.
Cara Burton will lead the seminar and describe how librarians have transformed themselves during the information age in order to help communities navigate the digital divide and build social capacity.
Burton, the new System Director of the Eastern Shore Public Library, has returned home after a tour of duty in metropolitan libraries and a museum.
These seminars are occasionally rescheduled on short notice. Prospective attendees are urged to check the Seminar’s website (www.SciPhi.org) shortly before a scheduled date.
