Privacy is essential to the exercise of free speech, free thought, and free association. Protecting your privacy is important to us at the Free Library of Philadelphia. We believe that every individual should be able to seek knowledge freely from any source—without the scrutiny or judgment of others. We want you to make the most of our services, whether online or in person, and to feel confident while doing so.
We release personal information only when compelled to do so by legal authorities, such as when presented with a court order, or to comply with investigations under the USA PATRIOT Act.
