Internet Policy

By using our computers you are agreeing to our Internet Use Policy found below.

The Lee-Whedon Memorial Library provides free access to the Internet in accordance with its mission to provide information of all types in a wide range of formats. This Internet Policy affirms the principles of intellectual freedom, equity of access, and confidentiality of information about users and their use of library resources.

The Internet is a vast and unregulated information network. The Library does not monitor and has no control over information on the Internet. Not all the information is accurate, current, or complete. Users are encouraged to exercise critical judgement in evaluating accessed information. The Library cannot protect users from information and images that they may find offensive or disturbing. The Library assumes responsibility only for the information provided on its homepage.

Since the Library Internet terminals are located in public areas throughout the building that are shared by persons of all ages, backgrounds, and sensibilities, individuals are asked to consider this when accessing potentially controversial information and images. The Library reserves the right to require individuals to discontinue the display of information and images that cause disruption.

Parents or legal guardians must assume responsibility for deciding which Library resources are appropriate for their children. Children who use the Internet unsupervised may be exposed to inappropriate and disturbing information and images. We encourage parents to learn about the Internet so that they can teach their children how to use technology properly and to make wise choices.

Library users are cautioned that the Internet is not a secure medium and all transactions, files, and communications are vulnerable to unauthorized access and therefore, should be considered public. The Library will not release information on the use of electronic resources by members of the public except as required by law.
