MLA Connect Webinar: Library Privacy Act Amendments

Tuesday, March 16, 2021
10:00 – 11:00am

Learn about recent amendments to the Library Privacy Act that have the potential to affect how libraries report crime, interact with law enforcement, interact with each other, and to underscore the seriousness of maintaining patron privacy. This session will go through the new amendments and discuss how they may affect existing library practices. This is presented as an in-depth follow-up to the Library of Michigan’s 1/27/21 Library Law Spotlight. Attendance at both events is not required.

Participants in this session will be able to:

  1. Identify the changes to the Library Privacy Act
  2. Understand how to apply these changes to existing policies.
  3. Explain the importance of the privacy act to relevant staff, boards, and volunteers.
