Avoiding Scams – Law Week 2019

Are you worried about sharing private information when you shop or pay your bills online? Have you had a phone call telling you that you need to pay your tax debt now or you’ll be arrested? A free talk at the Lithgow Library during Law Week may just help you avoid the scammers.

Scammers are people keen to get their hands on our money and our identity details. This presentation by a Legal Aid NSW lawyer outlines common scams. It will help you identify online scams, door to door scams, and scammers who contact you on the telephone. It will give you some practical tips on protecting yourself and give you information about how to report scams to authorities, how to protect your identity and how the law can help if you get scammed.

“With scams becoming an increasing problem, this presentation by Legal Aid is a great opportunity for you to become better informed on your legal rights. I encourage everyone to come along,” said Mayor Ray Thompson.

The free talk will take place at Lithgow Library on Wednesday 15 May 2019 from 11:00am to 12:00pm. Light refreshments will be served prior to the talk at 10.30am.  Bookings are essential for this event and can be made by contacting the library on 6352 9100.

Easter Storytime at Lithgow Library

With Easter almost upon us again, Lithgow Library has a special visitor coming to Storytime to help celebrate!

 “Easter is a magical time for children and their families and the Easter Storytime at Lithgow Library is an annual tradition, with lots of fun and excitement for the children,” said Mayor Clr Ray Thompson. 

Storytime is a popular preschool literacy program aimed at 3-5 year olds. Each week we read books, sing songs and follow up with a craft activity focusing on building fine motor skills.

On Wednesday 17th April at 10.30am we will have a special visit by the Easter Bunny who is coming along to share our songs and stories, and leave behind some eggs for the children to hunt using their very own handmade Easter baskets.

This is a free event and all are welcome.

Please contact Lithgow Library on 6352 9100 if you need any further information.
