In accordance with Missouri Revised Statutes, Chapter 182.817, the library’s records identifying the names of library patrons with specific materials and records that identify the names of library customers are confidential.

Patron records shall not be made available to anyone except pursuant to such process, court order, or subpoena as may be authorized by law, or in response to a written request of the person identified in that record, or as otherwise permitted by law.

Upon receipt of such process, court order or subpoena, legal counsel shall be made with the Library District’s attorney to determine if such process, court order, or subpoena is in proper form and if there is a showing of good cause for its issuance.
