Camera Security Policy

The Agnes Robinson Waterloo Public Library



In accordance with the Privacy Act, the Board recognizes that patron registration and

circulation records are confidential. Library employees are advised that such records

shall not be made available to any person, organization, or institution or an agency of

state, federal, or local government except pursuant to such process, order, or subpoena

as may be authorized under the authority of, and pursuant to federal, state, or local law

relating to civil, criminal or administrative discovery procedures or legislative power.

The library shall resist the issuance or enforcement of any such process, order, or

subpoena until such time as proper showing of good cause has been made in a court of

competent jurisdiction.

The Director and staff shall take every means possible to protect the confidentiality of

information on computer terminals. Requests for information that is personal in nature,

such as addresses and phone numbers, shall be answered by locating such information

in a published source. Providing personal information that is not published is a violation

of the Privacy Act. This includes providing information concerning the materials loaned

on an individual’s library card.
