The Library Bill of Rights states the following in Article VII:
“Libraries should advocate for, educate about, and protect people’s privacy, safeguarding all library use data, including personally identifiable information.”
Not only do library workers have a responsibility to protect user privacy, there is an obligation to educate users about privacy more broadly. Programming should instruct users of all ages about privacy tools and tactics they can use to lead a healthy online life.
