Library to community shredding service returns

The large industrial shredder can handle thousands of pages at once, even with paperclips and staples still attached.


The Natchitoches Parish Library (NPL) is hosting a four-hour shredding event Friday, April 30 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. An industrial-strength mobile shredding truck will be available for public use at the NPL Main Branch, 450 Second St., for no cost.

Only paper documents may be disposed, and staples and paperclips do not need to be removed. Everyone is welcome, businesses included. Those making use of this fee-free service must stay with their documents until they have all been loaded into the shredder. No drop-offs are allowed.
