Good Monday morning! (I know--what an oxymoron, right?!) Anyway, does any
library keep a record of donations, most specifically, who donated and for
whom? I need to create a policy for receiving cash donations in memory of a
deceased person. But, I'm pretty sure it is breaking privacy law but not
100% sure, so I thought I'd poll the masterminds on here to see what y'all
do. Oh, and if you have a policy, will you send it along? Thanks! OK, now
go have another cup of coffee/tea because I am going to as well.

available elsewhere, is about as sensible as asking if roadmaps are
necessary now that there are so very many roads. ~ *Jon Bing (1944-2014.
