I don't know if anyone else has said this, but I think probably what
happened is another patron accidentally typed in their barcode incorrectly.
Since Cloudlibrary doesn't provide any other identifier other than the
state, your library location, and then your barcode, someone could easily
put in the wrong one and still get books to their device (it just so
happens that it's in another persons account). I would recommend to your
patron that they get a new barcode. It's probably not the answer they want
to hear, but it will take care of the problem so that they have a private
account again. Hope this helps!
