Shred Day at the Library

Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes today and most identity information is still obtained through hard copy paper sources. Shredding significantly reduces your risk when disposing of confidential information. 

Shred Day will be held on Saturday September 17 from 10:00AM to 12:00PM in the gated library parking lot at the corner of Main Street and 4th Avenue SE. The gates will be open. There is no limit on the number of documents residents may have shredded. Drop off documents or wait while they are shredded. All shredding will be done onsite. There is no charge for this service. 
For more information, call the Reference Desk at (317) 844-3362.

Don't Be Fooled by Scam Artists

Don't be fooled by scam artists. Protect yourself from fraud by following Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller's top 5 scam prevention tips:

  1. Do not do business with incoming callers. Only do business when you initiate the call using a number you have in your records for the company, not that was left on caller ID or given to you by someone else.
  2. Do not feel pressured to make quick decisions. Take time to research any offers or demands. Ask trusted relatives and friends their opinions before making a decision.
