A Michigan law student is seeking information on patrons from libraries under the Freedom of Information Act. The librarians are, of course, aghast. But I have to ask, why is wrong for a member of the public to find out even whether we have a library card while the Federal government can use (or abuse) the USA PATRIOT Act to get much more information about us from libraries without our knowledge?
