ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Some Rochester Library patrons’ emails and names may have been stolen in a cyber-attack.

Library officials say they were notified that one of its library service partners, MNLINK, experienced a data breach Thursday.

More than 1,700 patrons’ data may have been access through this cyber-attack.

In the coming days, RPL will be directly communicating with potentially impacted customers, who will be encouraged to get a new library card and/or change their PIN. Library teammates are available to assist as necessary.

MNLINK and RPL are confident no additional private personal information was accessed during this incident.
