BRIEF: Librarians will fact-check Obama, Romney in final debate
Oct 22, 2012 (Menafn - The Kansas City Star - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --Johnson County reference librarians will take on big questions tonight to help voters get past the spin from the last debate between President Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
"Who knows what zinger will stick and have the staying power to stand the test of time to be mentioned years from now?" the Johnson County Library asked in a news release about a debate-viewing and fact-checking event at the Oak Park Library.
Viewers can discuss the issues while the candidates debate, and reference librarians will try to draw out the facts using neutral, bipartisan resources. And there will be pizza.
The free event, funded by the Johnson County Library Foundation, starts at 7:30 p.m. at the library, 9500 Bluejacket St. in Overland Park.
For more information, call 913-826-4600 or go to www.jocolibrary.org/elections. Registration is nice, but not necessary.
Also tonight, The Star's editorial board will be live-blogging the debate at KansasCity.com.
