Arizona Bill Would Expand Library Privacy Law
From the Associated Press:
A bill advancing in the Arizona Legislature would add protections for ebook readers under the state’s existing library privacy law.
A Senate panel is expected to move the bill forward Monday. The House passed the measure in a 57-1 vote in early March.
The measure seeks to include digital books under material protected by the state law that prohibits the disclosure of public library records.
Officials who release information about someone’s requested or checked out library material face misdemeanor charges in Arizona.
