Under no circumstances will the Martin County Public Library System release any personal
information to any third parties.
The Martin County Public Library System is committed to protecting the privacy of
our staff, donors, patrons, and other contacts. The Library will collect no personal
information about you when you visit our website or library unless you choose to
provide that information to us. Any information you provide will only be used to
improve library services. When you apply for a new library card, we require certain
information for our records. This information will only be used within the library
system. The Library secures personal account information by placing it on a secure
portion of the Library’s Server located at the library. We do not store any personal
information on servers that are not located within the library. One of our security
measures require customers to enter a unique Library Card Number and PIN each time
they want to access their account information. This helps protect the patron against
un-authorized access to personal information.
