Free Paper Shredding – Thursday, March 7th, 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.

This event is on March 7th, 2019 at 11:00am

The Attorney General’s Office will mark National Consumer Protection Week, the first full week of March, with free document destruction events throughout the state. The Basehor Community Library will be one of the locations this year to sponsor free paper shredding.

Why should you shred your personal documents? Identity thieves have a number of ways to obtain personal information and one of the most common ways is by finding a document – like a discarded bank or credit card statement – that has not been properly destroyed.

Bring all your personal or sensitive documents to the library for free, secure shredding.

This is a one-time event only.
