J Last week I wrote about press releases, this week I'd like to present a press release for the Library. The Summers County Public Library's Seed Library is open for the 2019 growing season. We have a selection of vegetables, herbs, and flowers that patrons may borrow and plant. The program is free, all we ask is that you attempt to harvest some of the seeds and return those to us in the fall so that we can keep the program growing. To borrow seed or get more details stop by the Library. Sprouting Farms will present "Let it Grow" Tuesday, March 5 from 5-6 p.m. The program is an introduction to the planting and growing of seeds. That was a straightforward press release, just the facts. I want to rewrite that one slightly to further clarify the difference between fact and opinion. The Summers County Public Library's Seed Library is open for the 2019 growing season. We have a great selection of vegetables, herbs, and flowers that patrons may borrow and plant. The program is free, all we ask is that you attempt to harvest some of the seeds and return those to us in the fall so that we can keep the program growing. Gardening is a fun way to relax, exercise, and enjoy nature and best of all you get to reap free food from the seeds you sow. To borrow seed or get more details stop by the Library. Sprouting Farms will present "Let it Grow" Tuesday, March 5 from 5-6 p.m. The program is an introduction to the planting and growing of seeds. The two statements are nearly identical, but the second contains several opinions about our selection and gardening in general. These opinions don't detract from the accuracy of the press release, but they are not facts, even if they feel true. We should always exercise caution with opinions. Facts too, for that matter, as they have a tendency to change over time. Is Pluto a planet? Are coffee, eggs, or wine good for you? No matter what type of information you are consuming, you should evaluate it before accepting or sharing it as true. Most of the time we do this without even thinking about it, but it is worth looking at how we evaluate information. Things to consider when evaluating information are Currency - the timeliness of the information, Authority - who wrote it, Accuracy - the correctness of the information, Relevance - the importance of the information, and Purpose - the reason the information exists. This information was published on March 5, 2019 meaning that it is currently up to date. The author is Austin Persinger, writing on behalf of the Summers Count}- Public Library. It is safe to believe that the information pertaining to the Library is reliable. If you are interested in finding out about happenings in the Library then this information is relevant to you, and the purpose of the information is to inform you about those happenings, and to serve as a primer to information literacy.
