COUNTY NEWS RELEASE

Online scams are more prevalent than ever, but not always easy to recognize. Mesa Public Library staff will present a free public program on Internet Safety on Tuesday, September 13 from 7-8 p.m. Attendees will have the option to attend virtually via Zoom Live or in person in the conference room on the upper level of Mesa Public Library.

This program focuses on scams that target older people, but will benefit everyone, and all ages are welcome. Anyone who struggles to keep up with the digital age and the gambling of internet scammers should consider attending. This program will cover common techniques used to separate you from your money and information and will help you learn how to recognize “phishing” attempts, better protect yourself online and feel more confident when browsing the web. .

Complementing this program, the library system also offers digital resources through Udemy, an online learning environment that offers educational modules on internet safety. This service is free for library users and only requires a library card number to log in.

If you are interested in participating in this program, please check the calendar of events at LosAlamosLibrary.org or call (505) 662-8257 to register. Hosted by graduate student Meagan Carter. Thank you to the Friends of Los Alamos County Libraries for making library programs and services possible.
