Prior to recording/reporting patron/client names, librarians may want to
check with the state laws, enacted  to protect the privacy of the library
users. As an example, NH has a statute,
http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/rsa/html/XVI/201-D/201-D-11.htm :
	"I. Library records which contain the names or other personal
identifying information regarding the users of public or other than public
libraries shall be confidential and shall not be disclosed except as
provided in paragraph II. Such records include, but are not limited to,
library, information system, and archival records related to the circulation
and use of library materials or services."
