    Will there be a similar shred time for the South Hill in the future ?

    • Spokane County Library District

      Hi David,
      While we don’t have anything planned for the Moran Prairie Library at this time, we’ll make note to try and include it as a location in the future.

  • Is there a maximum? Like a large garbage bag of old files?

    • Hi Kathy!
      Great question! We don’t have a formal limit and will shred as much as we can within the time provided.
      Looking forward to seeing you there!

  • Thank you so much for providing this service….. We sure need it…….And thank you for all your e. mails telling me what’s available in the community …..

    • Hi Susan!
      So glad to hear that! We’ll look forward to seeing you there.
      And we’re awfully glad you like our newsletter, it’s always great to get feedback!

  • Laurie

    Is this for personal papers or can they be business docs?

    • Hi Laurie,

      So sorry to respond after the fact. We’ve had success with our shred days in the past and it’s more than likely that we will do more in the future. Business and personal documents are both fine for shredding.

  • Olivia

    I didn’t know about this. When will you have your next shred day? It’s a very nice service to offer.

    • Hi Olivia,

      Glad you think so! We’ve had success with our shred days, so it’s likely that we will have more in the future. They have been around this time of year so far, but we don’t have anything on the schedule yet. Stay tuned!

    I see the next shred day is 2/18/2015 but what are the hours to drop off

    • Hi Cindy, we did some searching around and we were unable to find a shred day on 2/18/15. Can you let us know where you heard about this?

      In the midst of our search, we did discover a shred day on March 6, 2015. It’s put on by the US Postal Inspection Service and United Data Security. It’s going on from 7-10am on March 6th at the Metro Post Office Parking Lot – 5511 E Alki.

    My mistake. I misunderstood something. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Is there a limit amount you can bring?
