Computer Use & Internet Access Policy

This form must be signed and on file in order to use the library’s computers and wireless access. Please show your card at the circulation desk before using.

Users of the public computer workstations are required to follow the provisions of this policy as established by the Columbia Township Board. Failure to follow these guidelines may result in the loss of the right to use the computers or wireless access.

SUPERVISING CHILDREN’S USE

Parents or guardians, NOT the library staff, are responsible for the Internet information selected and/or accessed by their children. Parental supervision of children searching the Internet is advised.

Children UNDER the age of 12 MUST be accompanied by a parent, legal guardian, or adult caretaker at all times while using the computer workstations.

INDEPENDENT USE

Patrons using the computer must have basic computer skills to operate independently.

Library staff is limited in number and in the assistance they are able to provide.

CHOOSING & EVALUATING SOURCES

The Internet offers unlimited global access to information. However, not all sources on the Internet provide information that is accurate, complete, current, or legal. It is your responsibility, not the library’s, to monitor the content of the material you seek. The library’s only role is to provide computers and access to the World Wide Web.

The library assumes no responsibility for problems resulting from patron use of the Internet.
