NJLA Statement on Library Confidentiality and Access to Children’s Library Record

Over the years NJLA has received numerous questions from librarians, library board members and parents regarding whether or not the NJ Library Confidentiality statute (N.J.S.A. 18A:73-43.2) protects the confidentiality of children as well as adults.  NJLA’s position is that this law protects the confidentiality of ALL library users in New Jersey.  Nothing in the statute exempts minors from its protections.  The rights of minors to privacy in reading their choice of library materials should be respected and protected.
