Media literacy tools help us fact check news we get from friends and family, and from outside sources. Leading up to the election, we are sharing a series of media literacy tools, tips and reminders to help make sure you can trust the information you receive.

Break Out of Your Bubble
With the Nov. 3 election on the horizon, we all need to critically examine the information we read and share.

GET MEDIA SMART TIPS
Did you know the Falkirk Mansion is home to its very own ghost? Over the years people who have come and gone through Falkirk have reported seeing the ghost of Ella Park, the mansion's original owner. Some have caught a glimpse of her on on the staircase; others have seen her peering out the window. Those who have spotted the ghost note that she does not seem to be a malicious spirit, and seems only to be watching over her beloved home and its guests.

Last year, Library staff recorded some spooky ghost stories inside the haunted mansion. Enjoy!
Margaret shares The Doll by Jesse Reffsin from the anthology Thirteen Haunting Tales to Tell. Perfect for elementary grades and up!
