Internet Access

Internet access will be provided from the World Wide Web (WWW).  Access is not provided to E-mail, chat rooms, user groups or bulletin boards.

Not all sources on the Internet provide accurate, complete or current information.  Users need to be good information consumers, questioning the validity of information presented to them.

Users should understand that the Internet provides a wealth of information from thousands of computers world wide.  Some of the information may be offensive to individual tastes.  It is the responsibility of the user (parent of guardian in the case of users under 18) to select appropriate information.  Individuals who do not comply with this provision will have their computer privileges revoked.

Users will be personally responsible for any materials ordered via the internet.  They will need to pay for these items on-line with a credit card.  The Library will not be responsible for these costs.

Library staff cannot control the availability of communication links or services of the Internet Access Provider, which may change rapidly and unpredictably.

Only Library provided CD-ROMS may be used in the Library computers.  CD-ROMS are kept at the circulation desk and may be changed only by the Library staff.  Patrons may choose a CD-ROM from the posted list and request it from the circulation desk.
