Today in Lansing:

Media is consuming us. It's consuming you as we speak, considering you're reading this on some digital platform, be it a computer or a smartphone. It can be hard as an adult to monitor your media intake, and as a child, it would be even more difficult to discern what to consume when it comes to media. Today, there's a class called Helping Children (and Adults) Become Healthy Consumers of Media, a media education session that lasts from 6-7:30 p.m. at DeWitt District Library, 13101 Schavey Road, DeWitt. For more information, call (517) 669-3156.
