Mon, 02/27/2012

As part of its ongoing E-Government Literacy at the Library program, the Oakland Public Library is offering a free course geared for seniors, called Consumer Fraud: Scams Targeting Seniors and Tips for Protection and Prevention. The course will be presented by Legal Assistance to Seniors on Thursday, March 15, 2012 from 2 to 3:30pm. It will be held in the Main Library, 125 14th Street, in the Bradley C. Walters Community Room.

E-Government Literacy at the Library is an educational program to address the changing needs of 21st century citizens. Most current government publications are available in electronic format and increasingly government agencies are requiring applications and forms to be submitted online. To make people aware of the many local community and e-government resources available to them and to help them access these resources, the Library is offering a series of programs and workshops, in partnership with local community organizations, on a nearly monthly basis from January to September.

This project is supported in part by the US Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.
