Internet Usage Policy

Library Internet Policy (Updated April 2018)

It is a role of the Library to provide access to information so that those in the community can make informed decisions. Use of electronic information networks (Internet) expands the Library’s collection with information which otherwise may not be available.

The Internet contains a rapidly expanding universe of useful information, but it is an unregulated medium which contains resources that may be offensive. Because the Internet changes as quickly as it expands, the Library cannot control the information contained on it, and takes no responsibility for the quality, accuracy, or suitability of any Internet resource.

It is the responsibility of parents to monitor the library use of their children.

a. Children 10 or under must be accompanied by an adult to use the Internet.

If available, Library staff will help beginning users get started. Library staff cannot teach patrons how to use the computers, programs (may setup an appointment for an 1-on-1 session), fill out applications or type documents.

    1. Use the Internet for any purpose resulting in the harassment of others.
