Patron Data Privacy Policy

The Library, in the belief that all persons have the right, under the constitutions of the United States and the State of Minnesota, to read freely and use materials without restraint or fear of reprisals, shall maintain the records that identify materials used by borrowers as provided by the Minnesota Data Practices Act and other applicable law. The information contained thereon shall not be released to individuals or agencies except as permitted or as required by law.


This policy is reviewed every four (4) years, or as needed, by the Library Director (or designee) who makes recommendations to the Library Board Policy Committee.  The Committee reviews and revises as necessary, endorses and advances to the full Library Board for approval.
