Take your unwanted papers/documents to Mansfeld Park (4000 N. 4th Avenue) on Saturday September 21st. First box free, second box $5, but that fee benefits good causes as well. Most of us hopefully are now re-using our paper by printing on the back sides, or recycling it in our blue City bins, or shredding documents we can’t recycle due to fear of identity theft.

In April, we have our minds on money and money on our minds!
It can’t be helped since April 21-28 is Money Smart Week @ the Pima County Public Library!
Money Smart Week is a nationwide financial literacy event brought to you by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, the American Library Association and the Pima County Public Library.
We invite everyone to participate! Come and learn about the resources, programs, services available in Pima County. There are workshops for everyone, from children to adults and covering topics including reading credit reports, financial survival, and fair housing information. We’ll have Storytimes for the kids, Creating Duct Tape Wallets for the crafty, and Coupon Club for the thrifty!
There couldn’t be a better time to begin planning for tomorrow. Financial fitness begins here, at your library… Special thanks to our partners: Debbi Jasperson’s Coupon Club, The Credit Wise Cats, Financial Education Collaborative of Southern Arizona, Southwest Fair Housing Council, Hughes Credit Union, and the Pima County Housing Center.
Lots of events from Monday April 23 to Saturday April 28, at various branch libraries–Nanini, Flowing Wells, Woods, Valencia, Martha Cooper, Dusenberry-River, Kirk-Bear Canyon (click here for full schedule).

Do you know who’s behind the screen? Here are a few things to consider:
Malware attacks have increased by 400% since 2010.
More than 36 million Americans have been victims of identity theft. Arizona continues to be in the top two states for this crime, which is the top complaint to the Federal Trade Commission.
