Computer/Internet Use Policy and Guidelines
The Library reserves the rights to limit, refuse, and/or ban any patron from using the library equipment and computers. Use is limited to patrons in good standing, i.e., all fines have been paid, all overdue materials have been returned, any lost materials have been paid for, and the patron has a current local library card.
Anyone under the age of 13 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian while using library equipment or computers. Library equipment or computers are on a “first come, first served” basis. However, all patrons shall log in at the PC Reservation Computer prior to use. The computer user has a 2-hour time limit on library computers per day. This time can be split up during that day. You might be asked to limit your time on the computer to sixty (60) minutes if the computers are all in use.
Copyright laws forbid duplication of copyrighted software. The Library restricts the use of personal software on library computers. There is a charge of $ 1.00 for each data disk purchased from the Library, and a charge of $.20 per page of printing from a library computer. Please do not download or save information onto library computers.
Parents wishing to control the materials to which their children are exposed are expected to provide sufficient supervision of the children to accomplish this. Restriction of a child’s access to the Internet is the responsibility of the Parent or Guardian.
