Volunteer Confidentiality Agreement
1. Any patron information the volunteer may gain access to in the course of their volunteer service is to be considered strictly confidential. Arkansas Code 13-2-701 defines confidential library records as documents or information in any format retained in a library that identifies a patron as having requested, used, or obtained specific materials.
2. If approached by a patron requesting account information from any account other than their own, the volunteer will respectfully direct them to an available staff member at a service desk.
3. Wrongful disclosure of patron information will result in the termination of volunteer services and may result in legal action in accordance with Arkansas Code 13-2-702.
4. At any time the volunteer may request to be provided with a copy of the referenced Arkansas Codes.
