Personal information provided to the Airdrie Public Library is collected under the authority of Alberta’s Libraries Act and Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. The information is used to provide library services and maintain statistics.
Library Membership and Borrowing Records
Library membership information and patron borrowing records are kept strictly confidential. Personal information is protected under Alberta’s privacy legislation. Library use information is doubly protected through APL’s adherence to The Canadian Federation of Library Association’s Statement on Intellectual Freedom and Libraries.
Information and Reference Requests
APL tracks information and reference requests for statistical purposes but we record only the number of requests, not what is being requested by individual patrons.
Telephone Call Records
All calls to the Airdrie Public Library are recorded. However, audio recordings are only reviewed for security reasons on a case-by-case basis, and only with the approval of the Library Director. We do not routinely review calls to the Library.
