In an age where credit is everything, the Berlin-Peck Memorial Library is looking to lend a hand in helping residents develop a stronger credit rating.

The library on Wednesday will host a special program, Understanding Your Credit Report, offered to residents in Berlin and the surrounding area looking to get a jump on building a stronger credit report.

"It's a chance for people to learn how to obtain your credit report, how to read it, how to dispute errors and how to protect yourself from identity theft and the steps to take if you’re a victim," said Carrie Tyszka, reference librarian at the library.

The program will last about an hour and begins at 6:30 p.m. For more information or to reserve a seat, contact the library at (860) 828-7125.

This program is presented in conjunction with the Connecticut Money School, Connecticut Association for Human Services and Citizens Bank Foundation.
