Do you value your privacy? Is your personal information safe from prying eyes? May 1 – May 7 is Choose Privacy Week, a time for discussing and learning more about privacy. In the digital age, it can be difficult to protect your personal information. Library records are confidential and protected by law, but what about information that you willingly share with others, sometimes without even realizing it? The library has helpful resources for learning more about your privacy rights and protecting yourself in cyberspace. Check the Fairbanks events calendar for free upcoming classes on Internet, Email, and Facebook where you can learn more about selecting privacy settings, and remember to always log off of public computers when you are finished.
