The Northville District Library, as required by the Michigan Social Security Number Privacy Act, Public Act 454 of 2004, MCL 445.81, et seq., will protect the confidentiality of the Social Security numbers obtained in the ordinary course of business from employees, vendors, contractors, and others. No person shall knowingly obtain, store, transfer, use, disclose, or dispose of a Social Security number that the Library obtains or possesses except in accordance with the Act and this Privacy Policy.

Social Security numbers shall not be requested from, maintained, or used in any way with regard to Library patrons.

  • Applicants may be required to provide a Social Security number for purposes of a pre-employment background check.
  • Copies of Social Security cards may be obtained for purposes of verifying employee eligibility for employment.
