Learn how to fight fraud – at your library!

Book lovers flock to their local library to pick up a favorite classic or the latest bestseller. But today library visitors also want and need a whole lot more. In addition to providing traditional services, librarians help diverse groups of people navigate a complicated world, including how to avoid scams.

Our job is to give people a heads-up so that maybe they don’t get knocked off balance and they don’t get ripped off.
