Anonymous Patron writes "From the Associated Press:
Alaska State Senator Lyda Green (R) has introduced a bill requiring public libraries to give parents access to their children's records.
Some librarians say kids seeking information in the library deserve to have their privacy protected, as long as they're using the library responsibly.
Green sponsored the bill after hearing complaints from constituents."
Parents often argue that as the party liable for their children's library
they should have full access to either all or the relevant circulation records.
Wisconsin and some other states have also proposed or enacted such laws.
