The mission of the Sno-Isle Libraries is to be a community doorway to reading, resources and life long learning and to be a center for people, ideas and culture.
Consistent with RCW 42.56.310, it is the policy of Sno-Isle Libraries (the Library) that any library record, the primary purpose of which is to maintain control of library materials, or to gain access to information, which discloses or could be used to disclose the identity of a library user, is exempt from public inspection and copying. These records are considered confidential and protected by the right of privacy established by the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution and laws of the State of Washington.
The purpose of the Confidentiality Policy is to ensure confidentiality of customer information in the library. The Library safeguards access to customer library records and restricts access to that information to staff in the normal course of business and the customer who owns the library card, except as provided in this policy.
For the purpose of this policy, such confidential records include but are not limited to: registration records, circulation records, reference interviews, materials request lists, database search records, financial information and computer booking records.
