Privacy Statement

The following data is retained by the library for the purpose of reporting usage statistics. It is logged each time a computer is used:

  • Computer Name/Number
  • Date of use
  • Session start time
  • Session end time
  • Session length

Our computer management software recognizes valid users by matching the card number provided with a corresponding number in the library patron database. It does not record or retain name, address, phone number, SSN, etc.

Library user information is confidential. However, not all Internet sites keep information confidential. State law requires that a court order is necessary for the Library to release any personal information.
