Public Internet Access Policy

The Internet is filled with resources that can educate, entertain and expand your horizons. However, access to material of a controversial or mature nature, as well as to material that is not accurate, complete or current is unavoidable. Anything accessed or entered on the Library's computers is not secure and may be accessible to others.

The Library advises customers to exercise judgment and discrimination
when evaluating the usefulness and reliability of material found on the Internet.
As with all library materials, restriction of a child's access is the responsibility
of the parent or legal guardian.

The Library strongly discourages the use of instant messaging and chat rooms.

It is not acceptable to use the Internet for any purposes which violate U.S. or State Laws, to transmit threatening, obscene or harassing materials, or to interfere with or disrupt network users, services or equipment.

The Cora J. Belden Library now offers wireless access to the library's Internet service, for properly equipped laptops and handheld computers. When customers use the Internet in the library, they are accepting the library's Internet Acceptable Use Policy.

Approved by the Library Board of Directors, 9/14/99. Amended: 4/12/04; 9/20/04; 2/12/07.
