Take Charge! National Consumer Protection Week at Central Library

The Huntington Beach Public Library is proud to announce that it has joined a group of federal, state, and local government agencies to launch the 12th annual National Consumer Protection Week, March 7-13, 2010, which highlights the importance of using good consumer sense at every stage of life – from grade school to retirement.

On Thursday, March 11 at 6pm, the Department of Consumer Affairs will be offering a free presentation “Take Charge: Be Smart, Be Safe, Be Heard”, which will offer important information on how to protect your privacy online, manage money and debt, avoid identity theft, understand credit and mortgages, resolve disputes, and steer clear of frauds and scams. There will be information for teens and children included in the presentation. Kids under 12 spend billions of dollars on goods and services each year, so it makes sense to provide them with these valuable tools. It’s essential that kids understand key consumer and business concepts, like credit and identity theft, banking and fraud, and marketing and advertising. Throughout the week, there will be a “Take Charge” book display at Central Library, with resources on consumer protection available for checkout.

The “Take Charge!” presentation will be held at Central Library on March 11, 2010, from 6-7 pm in the Maddy Room.
