Internet Use Policy

The Internet is a vast network. The Internet is a dynamic environment with the content and format of information accessed from these networks constantly changing. Its resources provide unprecedented opportunities to expand the scope of information available to users. However, there is no regulation of its content or accuracy thereof. Users are cautioned that ideas, points of view and images can be found on the Internet which are controversial, divergent and/or inflammatory. The provision of access does not mean or imply that the library endorses or sanctions the content or point of view of any of the information or commentary which may be found on the Internet.

In compliance with Federal law, all library computers accessible by minors are filtered. These filters prohibit receipt of pornographic and obscene material.

Supervising Children’s Use of the Internet – Library staff does not monitor or supervise Internet access except for length of use. Parents or guardians, not library staff, are responsible for the Internet information selected and/or accessed by their children. Parental supervision of children searching the Internet is advised.

  1. Children 10 and under must have a parent or guardian with them at all times.
  2. Children 11-17 must have signed permission from parent or guardian and a valid library card to use the Internet without parent or guardian supervision.
  3. Children under 18 may not access chat lines or instant messengers. E-mail is permitted.

 

The Internet may not be used for any kind of illegal activity. The library will cooperate with law enforcement personnel if such a situation occurs.
