     What you need to know about the USA PATRIOT Act

    Your library records are confidential.  The USA PATRIOT Act, however, requires the Library to provide access to those records when presented with the appropriate authorization (subpoena or search warrant).  This federal law also prohibits library staff from notifying you that such a request has been made.  Congress extended this provision of the law until June 1, 2015.

    In order to preserve confidentiality, the Library retains personally identifiable information, e.g., what books you've checked out, only as long as is necessary to provide library services.
