CHEYENNE - Protect yourself from identity theft by joining AARP Wyoming for its ShredFest event at the Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library in Sheridan on Oct. 3 from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.

AARP Wyoming hosts ShredFest events around the state of Wyoming in an attempt to help consumers protect their identity by shredding old documents in a secure manner.

On Oct. 3 Secure Shred will provide a shredding truck in the parking lot of the Sheridan County Fulmer Library, located at 335 W. Alger Street in Sheridan from 11 a.m - 1 p.m. Consumers are welcome to bring boxes of documents to be shredded free of charge.
