Library to host Community Shred Service next Friday

The industrial strength shredder can handle a lot, and paperclips and staples don’t even need to be removed.


The Natchitoches Parish Library (NPL) Community Shred Service is back again for Fall. The four-hour shredding event will take place in the NPL parking lot, Friday, Sept. 17, from 10 a.m. to 2 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. 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.
