Do you keep piles of old bills, paystubs, checkbooks, and tax forms? Do you need to? Find out at an informative seminar entitled “Record Keeping 101,” on Thursday, March 27, at 6:30pm at Davenport Public Library’s Main Street location (321 Main Street), as Deb Bartman from the University of Illinois Extension Office explains which documents you should keep, and which should be shredded to protect your identity. This unique program is offered in conjunction with “Money Smart Week Quad Cities,” sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. Registration is not required.
Additionally, “Community Shred Day,” a companion program to this seminar will be held on Saturday, April 5, from 1:30 -4:30 pm at the Fairmount Street Library (3000 N. Fairmount Street). This program will allow you the opportunity to bring, in bulk, items ready for document destruction. More information about both programs can be found at www.davenportlibrary.com.
