Confidentiality of Patron Records

The Library shall make all reasonable attempts to keep patron circulation and registration records, and other patron inquiry records, confidential unless court ordered. Upon receipt of a court order, the Director shall contact the Library's attorney for advice. However, records of minors can be disclosed to their parents, stepparents or guardians.


This policy shall not be construed as a guarantee by the Library to its patrons of any absolute right to privacy. The Library is not responsible for information gained from a patron record by anyone other than the patron, if the patron has lost or loaned his/her card or if someone has obtained the patron information by illegal or inappropriate methods.
