|2005 - 091||ILL BANDS|
|It has come to the attention of LTLS (by phone calls from patrons) that a few libraries are indicating the names of their patrons on the gold bands. The new gold bands were created to be reusable and should only contain the three-letter code of the library (and the due date for non-automated libraries, if applicable). LTLS would like to discourage the practice of adding the patron's name on the gold band to protect the patron's confidentiality.|
