Are these Student Student Power Plus Cards secure?

Yes, Student Power Plus Cards are secure.  Like always, patron’s library card records are private and confidential. The information we have (address, phone number, birth date, materials checked out) is still private and confidential. All parties involved, the Library, JCPS, KidTrax, Polaris, and the card manufacturer understand privacy issues. This card will have the same security as our current cards do. JCPS will not be able to use our barcode to access library card information, as we will not be able to use the JCPS student ID to generate any student’s school records. Any statistical information generated about library use will be from groups, not individuals. For example, the library may run a report showing which school had the highest number of LFPL materials checked out.
