Gale Virtual Research Library


The Cohoes Public Library was very happy to have Sarah McFadden of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Rensselaer County give a class on online privacy and security. Sarah covered important topics including malware, password and email security, pop-ups and phishing expeditions.

Attendees of the program were very appreciative of the informative lecture.

One of the guests in attendance, Barbara Hildreth, was impressed with the presentation and found it very informative. She appreciated McFadden’s use of accessible language during the presentation.

“She didn’t use any extensive language,” said Hildreth. “She spoke in everyday language that I could understand.” Troy Record
