Date & time: Thursday, June 15, 6 – 7:30pm

Location: Carnegie Library of Homestead 510 E 10th Ave Munhall, PA 15120

Learn how to use publicly available data to answer questions about your community. PublicSource reporters will help you answer: How do I access anything from court records to campaign finance data to professional licenses? How can I learn more about the practices of landlords or business owners? What government records do I have the right to access and how do I get them?

Presented by Rich Lord and Eric Jankiewicz of PublicSource

This session is presented free of charge in partnership with the Carnegie Library of Homestead, through the generous support of the Jefferson Regional Foundation.
