Gated Library Parking Lot
(Main St. and 4th Avenue SE)

Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes today and most identity informationis still obtained through hard copy paper sources.  Shredding significantly reduces your risk when disposing of confidential information. It is recommended that you shred any documents that include a signature, account number, social security number, or medical or legal information. No limit on the number of documents residents may have shreded. Drop off documents or wait while they are shredded. All shredding will be done onsite. No charge for this service. For more information, call the library reference desk at 844-3362.
