No. While you are allowed to look at the history of the items you personally have checked out by signing into InfoHawk+, library staff will not reveal who has an item checked out to other library patrons. We abide by the law in Iowa that states:

"22.7 Confidential records.
The following public records shall be kept confidential, unless otherwise ordered by a court,
by the lawful custodian of the records, or by another person duly authorized to release such
information: ...

13. The records of a library which, by themselves or when examined with other public
records, would reveal the identity of the library patron checking out or requesting an item
or information from the library. The records shall be released to a criminal or juvenile
justice agency only pursuant to an investigation of a particular person or organization
suspected of committing a known crime. The records shall be released only upon a judicial
determination that a rational connection exists between the requested release of information
and a legitimate end and that the need for the information is cogent and compelling."
