This policy applies to the library whenever a written request for public records is made under Michigan's FOIA law. This policy does not apply to any records exempt from disclosure such as, but not limited to:

- Pending public bids to enter into contracts
- Records that would disclose the social security number of an individual

The requesting party must also include their complete name , address, and valid contact information of the person's agent who is an individual. An address must be in compliance with the United States Postal Service addressing standards. To assist in locating the requested records, the library may request that the requesting party provide additional information known to the requesting party, such as the types of records, dates, parties to correspondence, and subject matter of the requested records. A FOIA request will be answered within 5 business days after receiving it. If needed, the library will notify the requester in writing and extend the time for an additional 10 business days.
