Start collecting your personal papers now because we’re having a free shred day Saturday, September 24 from 11am – 2:00pm. Kent Records Management will be set up in the library’s parking lot to shred your sensitive documents and papers.  All paper will be securely transported to Kent Records Management for shredding and recycling.

Which papers do you need to keep in hard copy and which can you get rid of?  This article from Consumer Reports covers different types of personal documents and how long they need to be kept.  Experts advise that any papers with a signature, account number, social security number, or medical or legal information (plus credit offers) should be shredded before disposal to help prevent identity theft.

We’ll see you Saturday, September 24 for some shredding fun!  Up to 100 pounds of paper per person will be accepted.
