Library Internet Use Policy

The Library provides access to Internet World Wide Web content in accordance with our mission of satisfying our customer's need to know.

The Library's official web site the Library Web provides customers with links to basic information on the World Wide Web that has been indexed, reviewed, and recommended by staff. In addition the Library allows customers to connect to other network resources outside the Library.  

The Library assumes no responsibility or liability for any such content. Customers are encouraged to exercise discretion while using the World Wide Web content. Parents and children are encouraged to learn more about child safety on the Internet from the Kid's Web page on the Library Web. As with all library materials, restriction of a child's access to the Internet is the responsibility of the parent/legal guardian. 

The Library employs filtering technology to reduce the possibility that customers may encounter objectionable content in the form of depictions of full nudity and sexual acts.

 Customers who encounter objectionable content may request a block for that content using the online Customer Request for Reconsideration of Library Materials or World Wide Web Resources Form or the printed version available in each library. 

Customers who are prevented by the filtering technology from access to content which they believe is not objectionable may request that the block be removed using the online Customer Request for Purchase of Library Materials or Access to World Wide Web resources Form or the printed version available in each library.

Using the Library's online services for unlawful activities, including unauthorized online access or "hacking", is prohibited. The unauthorized disclosure, use, and dissemination of personal identification information regarding minors is prohibited as well.

The library is not responsible for any liability that may occur as a result of the disclosure of financial or other personal information over the libraryís public computer services. Users should be aware that use of public computers is not a secure medium and that third parties may be able to obtain information regarding userís activities.
