Do you want to be more informed about local, national, and world events? Do online news briefs provide more questions than answers? Then, take a look at the “Go Behind the News” blog.
“Get free library materials that not only encourage a deeper understanding of how news events affect you, but provide the ‘big picture’ details you need to make sense of your world,” said Monica Norem, librarian.
Experienced college/public librarians at the Lone Star College-CyFair Library locate and compile library resources on the new blog at http://gobehindthenews.blogspot.com/ to provide background on news stories such as:
Iran Dismisses Bush’s Threat of Sanctions for Nuclear Development
Salmonella Outbreak - Why Is Food Contaminated?
Largest Biodiesel Plant Opens in Houston
Running a Presidential Campaign
Rising Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Cases
Politics & the Price of Oil
In a global economy, events around the world may be as important as happenings around the corner. Get past the headlines and hype with free books, DVDs, and more from the library.
