Data Privacy Statement

According to the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act, library users must be informed of what private data is being collected, its uses, and disposition (sometimes referred to as the “Tennessen warning”).

By Minnesota law, information you provide when applying for a library card, except your name, as well as information which links your name with library materials, is private. It is available only to you and to appropriate library personnel. This information is required to support library services and ensure that library operations function properly. You are not legally required to provide the information on the application, but you will not receive a library card number if you do not complete the information on the application. Personally identifiable information provided will be kept confidential and will not be disclosed to any third party unless East Central Regional Library is compelled to do so under the law.

Electronic submission of the Request a Library Card form will serve as your signature. By submitting this form, you verify that all information submitted is true and accurate.
