Usage of computers and the Internet
at the Library is a privilege. The library does not use filters on
it's computers and material accessed on the Internet is the
responsibility of each individual. Everyone must refrain from usage
that the general public, children and library personnel may find
offensive, anyone who views offensive material will not be allowed
to use the library's computers. In addition, violation of local,
state or federal law is not allowed.
Internet usage is limited to
thirty (30) minutes per day. Time may be reserved by signing the
Internet Usage Register, or contacting the library. The public
computers are also available on a walk-in basis if they have not been
previously reserved. If no one is waiting to use a public access
computer, individuals may continue to use their computer for as long
as they need, or until they are asked to sign off. Library personnel
are the gatekeepers regarding computer time, and if a patron is
asked to stop using the computer, the patron must do so.
Patrons under the age of 18 years
must have an Internet Usage Permission Form signed by their parents
and on file at the Library.
