Access to Materials:
The Pease Public Library does not restrict access to any materials on the basis of a person’s color, religion, national origin, socioeconomic status, sex, or age. Free access to the total library is essential to public library service for the entire community.
New Hampshire laws, RSA 91-A:5 and RSA 201-D:11, protect the privacy of library users except as provided therein in cases involving subpoenas, court orders or other state or federal statutes. Confidentiality as dictated by New Hampshire law extends to information sought or received, and materials consulted, borrowed, or acquired, and includes registration records, circulation records, database search records, reference interviews, interlibrary loan records, and all other personally identifiable uses of library materials, facilities, or services. The Pease Public Library adheres to these laws and protect patrons’ privacy in accordance with them.
Because of this, we do not keep a record of the items you have checked out. There is a way for you to make it accessible to yourself via your library account. If you log into "my account" , click on account preferences and then search and history preferences. You can mark the box that says "keep history of checked out items" that will allow you to view the items you have previously checked out.
