Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy
Under MFIPPA, (Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act) library patrons have the right to access their own personal information, subject to very limited exemptions. An example of one of the exceptions to access is when the information in question is a research or statistical record.
Children have the same privacy and access rights as adults, except that section 54(c) of MFIPPA provides that a person who has lawful custody of the individual may exercise the rights of access of an individual less than 16 years of age. Accordingly, if a child under 16 would be entitled to access the information, so would his or her custodial parent.
Gifts and Donations
Gifts of books and other material are accepted on the understanding that the library has unconditional ownership of the gifts and that such material, including private collections, can be integrated with the library collection. Any donated items that cannot be used may be disposed of by the library. The library is not responsible for informing the donor of such disposition.
If a tax receipt is required, it is the responsibility of the donor to have the items independently valued. All costs will be assumed by the donor.
Tax receipts for monetary donations will be issued on request.
