Patron confidentiality

Since Vermont Statutes require written permission from a patron in order to release information about their library usage, Kimball Public Library offers patrons the opportunity to fill out and sign a release form indicating who can have access to their patron record. Staff keep the forms on file, and add a note to their digital record so it’s easy for staff to see who has approved whom. When cards expire, staff check to see whether the patron has already had the spiel; cards are routinely set to expire on patrons’ 16th birthdays.
