Anyone owing $5.00 or more in fines will not be allowed access to any library service, including computers, until your fines are under $5.00. We filter the computers as required by Federal Law with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA). However, it does not guarantee something inappropriate will not slip through. Users viewing anything staff deems inappropriate will be banned from using the computers. Our Wi-Fi has security on it just as we do our public computers, if viewing inappropriate material you will be asked to leave the library. Parents, be cautious and take responsibility for protecting your child.
