COUNTY NEWS RELEASE
Online scams are more prevalent than ever but not always easy to recognize. The staff at Mesa Public Library will be presenting a free public program on internet safety on Tuesday, Sept. 13 from 7 to 8 p.m. Participants will have the opportunity to attend virtually via Zoom livestream or in person in the conference room on the upper level of Mesa Public Library.
This program emphasizes scams that target seniors but will be beneficial for anyone, and all ages are welcome. Anyone struggling to keep up with the digital age and the game 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 to recognize “phishing” attempts, better protect yourself online, and feel more confident while browsing the world wide web.
As a supplement to 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 to library patrons and only requires a library card number to sign in.
If you’re interested in attending this program, please visit the event calendar at LosAlamosLibrary.org or call (505) 662-8257 to register. Hosted by graduate student Meagan Carter. Thanks to the Friends of Los Alamos County Libraries for making library programs and services possible.
