LILRC 26th Annual Conference on Libraries and the Future
October 26, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Design the Experience: Risk & Reward
Presentation Title: Fake News – the often fraught relationship between politicians and
the Fourth Estate
Paulette Brinka is working at her third career, as an educator, but has in truth been a story teller for all of her professional life. Educated at Boston University and Hofstra University, she started as a reporter/anchor for (the late!) WGSM in Huntington and WALK in Patchogue, sharing narratives of people, institutions and events. Moving into government, she served as Public Information Officer for the Town of Brookhaven. That position involved explaining the government to constituents, and explaining the constituents to the government. Lots of stories were told there! In addition, she was pleased and honored to participate in the stories of women returning to the workforce as part of Dress for Success Brookhaven. She now teaches at several Long Island colleges, including Suffolk County Community College’s Grant Campus, sharing her passion for communication with the next generation of story tellers. Her interests include reading, researching, and making friends with every research librarian she meets.
For 26 years, the LILRC Annual Conference has showcased topics relevant to the interests of Long Island libraries. This year’s conference is going to be another can’t-miss event. The theme, Designing the Experience: Risk & Reward, came about after much discussion. What are the challenges facing libraries today? What might those challenges look like five years from now? These are questions that the conference has grappled with from its inception.
