The public is invited to attend the Saturday morning breakfast and presentation at the Kiwanis Club of Weston meeting Oct. 13, beginning at 8:30 in the parish hall of Norfield Church, Norfield Road.
Karen Tatarka, director of the Weston Public Library, will speak about challenges and opportunities for public libraries in the 21st Century. Her discussion of how libraries are changing to adapt to the new world of electronic media and digital formats, such as audiobooks and e-books, as well as different community needs, will focus on what literacy means in the modern world.
Ms. Tatarka came to Weston from the Wilton Library and has worked in libraries for more than 15 years, mostly in academic settings. Her passion for information literacy — defined as the ability to find reliable information through a variety of print and electronic resources — already is making a difference in the Weston Public Library by expanding the kinds of resources available and making them more user-friendly.
The Kiwanis Club of Weston, an organization dedicated to community service, sponsors a variety of programs and events to raise money for local organizations whose activities benefit the community.
The club’s membership is open to all men and women living or working in the area.
