Security Freeze

Security Freeze

A security freeze, also known as a credit freeze, is a consumer right provided by Indiana law. Placing a security freeze on your credit reports can block an identity thief from opening a new account or obtaining credit in your name. If you activate a security freeze, an identity thief cannot take out new credit in your name, even if the thief has your Social Security number or other personal information.

Shred Day at the Library

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 30th 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 individuals 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. Any cardboard boxes will be returned to the patron.
For more information, call the Reference Desk at (317) 844-3362.
