Here's a commentary from a mom who, while in theory likes that her local library takes patron privacy seriously, feels a bit put out by not being able to find out what her minor-aged sons have checked out.
as much as I'm not a big believer in the ''it takes a village'' approach to raising children, I think I'd welcome the well-timed call from my local librarian should he or she deem something on my son's check-out record a little ... curious. Like if one of my kids were checking out his 19th book about fertilizer, pipes and detonating devices in the last three weeks. Is that an ''extenuating circumstance?''
