Open Records Requests

Open records requests to the Warren County Public Library are governed by KRS 61.870-61.991 & Code of Ordinances 2-20.

Patron Records: Public records containing information of a personal nature are protected from disclosure by the personal privacy exemption of state law, and a public library is not required to make circulation records available for public inspection under the Open Records Law.

[according to a Kentucky attorney general’s report dated March 12, 1982]: “…the individual’s privacy right as to what he borrows from a public library (books, motion picture film, periodicals and any other matter) is overwhelming.” This conclusion was based on KRS 61.878 (1)(a), which exempts from the mandatory requirement of public disclosure ‘public records containing information of a personal nature where the public disclosure thereof would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.’”
