Library Hosts Shredding Event with the Better Business Bureau

The Peters Township Public Library and the Better Business Bureau of Western Pennsylvania will host “Secure Your ID” Day on Saturday, Oct. 20

The event will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the library’s parking lot. This identity theft and fraud prevention event will feature free on-site shredding plus tips to protect your identity.

"Did you know that protecting your identity is largely in your own hands? Fifty-six percent of identity theft victims traced the theft to something that was stolen from their own possession," event organizers said in an email.

At the Oct. 20 event, BBB volunteers will guide cars through a moving line in the library parking lot, offload disposable items, shred them on the spot and distribute goodie bags with educational material regarding identity theft and fraud prevention.

Each vehicle may dispose of a maximum of 3 boxes/bags of paper-based materials.

Major sponsors of the program are the Peters Township Public Library, The Paper Exchange and First Commonwealth Bank. For more information about “Secure Your ID” Day, call the BBB at 877.267.5222.
