COMPUTER AND INTERNET ACCESS


Members and visitors are welcome to access the Internet at the library. We have six Public Internet Stations in the Adult Department, two Stations in the Teen Area and two Stations in the Children's Department.

You are welcome to use your personal laptop/notebook computer, tablet, eReader etc. Wireless access to the Internet is available within the library. If necessary, you may also connect to one of the Internet cable outlets located in the floor.

The speed of the Internet and the computers connected to it are beyond the control of library staff. Speed may be affected by the number of people using this free service as well as the types of activities in which users are engaged.

All information downloaded or saved on library computers will be deleted upon restarting the station. Losing your data will be prevented by saving your work on an external memory stick or emailing it to yourself. You are responsible for logging out of all password protected programs to protect your own privacy. The only way to remove sensitive information is by restarting the station. Please ask staff for assistance with this.

2. Parents or guardians are responsible for monitoring their children's Internet activity and choice of workstation.

3. Be aware that the workstations are in public areas shared by people of all ages and sensibilities.
