Support The Library
Revised January 23, 2020
The Internet, as an information resource, enables the library to provide access to information beyond the confines of its own collection. It allows access to ideas, information and commentary from around the globe. However, the Internet is an unregulated medium. As such, it offers access to material that is personally, professionally, and culturally enriching to individuals of all ages. It also enables access to some material that may be offensive, disturbing and/or illegal.
The library upholds and affirms the right of each individual to have access to constitutionally protected material. The library also affirms the right and responsibility of parents to determine and monitor their children’s use of library materials and resources. The library cannot control or monitor material that may be accessible from Internet sources. Parents are encouraged to work closely with their children in selecting material and Internet sites that are consistent with personal and family values and boundaries. Children are encouraged to talk with their parents about using the Internet.
