Due to the weather forecast, the free AARP-sponsored shred day planned for this Saturday, April 22 at the Brentwood Library has been canceled.
A program called “Avoid the Con Game,” which is aimed at teaching people how to avoid scams and scam artists, will still be held inside the library at 11 a.m. The program was also scheduled for 1 p.m., but that session has been canceled. The program is expected to last approximately 30 to 40 minutes.
According to the Brentwood Library’s website, “Avoid the Con Game” will focus on the AARP Fraud Watch Network. This is a tool that provides people with “real-time alerts about the latest scams, tips on how to spot them, and the inside scoop on how con artists think so you can outsmart them before they strike.”
The program is free, although attendees are encouraged to register for it. Registration for the 11 a.m. session is available here.
There is no word yet on if and when the free shred day will be rescheduled.
