Media Literacy at CMAC

What is U.S. Media Literacy Week?

Media Literacy Week is hosted by the National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE). The goal is to promote media literacy awareness and education.

As a community media center, our goal is to help our community become effective media consumers and producers. Our Media Literacy Series is the result of a great deal of research and planning and couldn’t come at a better time, with fake news and dis-information so readily available to us.

Media literacy is for everyone! We all rely on media in some form and, because it’s constantly evolving and changing, we must understand how it impacts our daily lives and our society at large. We hope you join us in October!
