Procedures for Handling Patron Confidentiality

A patron must identify himself at the library cardholder either in person or on the telephone before any information will be given concerning:

            Items checked out

            Items overdue

            Fees due information

            Hold information

When speaking to a family member and not to the patron, information about library materials should be restricted to information that does not reveal the content except in the case of minors.
