The library's Board of Trustees has approved a policy that current library records of children 12 and under should be available to their parents or guardians. Parents of children age 12 and under may ask for and obtain the titles of materials that their children currently have checked out.
Records of cardholders, age 13-18, are confidential, as are adult records.
If you use third party vendors, such as Overdrive, to access library materials, your records may be subject to the policies of that vendor. The majority of the Fairfax County Public Library's eBooks and eAudiobooks are accessed through Overdrive. Kindle users are subject to the privacy policies of Amazon.com when they access their Amazon.com accounts. Please visit individual vendor sites for more information.
