Exciting Upcoming Programs

This week, the library is having two programs at the main branch which come at the perfect time of year. Wednesday at 6:30pm in the Large Meeting Room of the Main Library, there will be an identity theft program titled “Protect Your Identity: Be Yourself …Or Someone Else Will!” The program will teach you how to protect yourself from identity theft, which can be especially useful information to many of us during tax season. This hour-long presentation will be given by Margaret Burlew of the LSU Ag Center.

On Thursday at 6:00pm, the library will hold its 2010 Financial Aid Workshop. Presenters include the Louisiana Office of Student Financial Assistance and the U.S. Military. Representatives of the Terrebonne Parish Library will discuss TOPS, private & military scholarships, filling out FAFSA, and test preparation strategies. As the end of the school year draws near, this program can help high school students get ready for the years to come. You can register for the program in advance by contacting the reference department at 985-876-1733, ext. 202.
