Patron invites librarian to bathroom for consultation

Daniel writes "The names have been removed to protect the blushing, but a colleague at the library in question assures me it's true:

This week a woman approached a reference librarian at a library in Alaska. She asked if the librarian would come into the women's
restroom with her.

A bit taken aback, the librarian inquired if there was a problem. Evidently, this patron had just taken a home pregnancy test and was
unsure of the results.

The librarian complied. According to the interpretative results as stated on the kit, she was indeed pregnant. After muttering something
about concern about her boyfriend, she left.

What they don't teach you in library school!"


That's wild but ethically should they have made that kind of call?
