library patron private info 

Just called out our library admin for making phone number a required field on our university library curbside pickup request form. We have avoided gathering personal info such as phone number and addresses for a decade to minimize the possibility of abuse--now they're requiring a phone number? At best, make it an option if the patron prefers that mode of contact.

This is what happens when admin bypasses their librarians entirely, I suppose.
