[ARCHIVED] Tour the C-Span Bus at Campbell Center, Tuesday, March 26


The C-SPAN Bus, a 45-foot interactive, multi-media learning center that brings C-SPAN’s coverage of public affairs to communities nationwide will be available for public tours at Campbell Community Center, 155 High St., on Tuesday, March 26, from 10:30 a.m. – noon. Educators, students, and local residents are welcome aboard!

C-SPAN is an acronym for Cable-Satellite Public Affairs Network. It is a private, non-profit cable television network created in 1979 by the cable industry as a public service. It broadcasts the proceedings of the federal government and other public affairs programming. In the Eugene/Springfield area, C-SPAN airs on Comcast Cable Channel 24.

Inside the bus, interactive stations demonstrate C-SPAN programming, online resources, how to follow the 113th Congress with C-SPAN’s Congressional Chronicle web site, and how to use the C-SPAN Video Library -- an archive featuring 190,000 hours of C-SPAN programming.

New this year, the Bus also showcases C-SPAN’s original series, “First Ladies: Influence and Image”, airing on Mondays at 6 p.m. PT on C-SPAN. It will be the first ever television series to showcase all of the American first ladies from Martha Washington to Michelle Obama.
