Library Changes Policy over Release of User Information

The Associated Press Says The St. Louis Public Library has changed the policy that late last year allowed an FBI agent to walk out of a library branch with patrons' computer sign-up sheets without a court order.
Under the revised policy approved by the library board Feb. 3, such sign-up sheets will be deemed private records and will only be turned over to law enforcers under a court order, spokesman Gerald Brooks said. Brooks said a St. Louis law firm that counsels the board advised board members to make the change.
