Did you know that librarians have a CODE OF ETHICS that we take very seriously?
Part of our Code is that we pledge to protect your right to privacy and confidentiality in what you read, consult, or borrow from us and that we uphold the principles of intellectual freedom and resist censorship. Since it is our professional duty to support your right to privacy, what does all this mean for you?
1. We do not sell your personal information.
2. We do not collect or share information about your reading habits or database use.
3. We will not turn over our basic records even to the police, without a court order.
4. Although we offer books, DVD’s, CD’s, and other items for loan, we are not a commercial enterprise, so do not use your records to advertise or make money.
We are a part of your local government and your library records are treated as confidential, much like your health and insurance records.
