Salina Library Internet Access Policy

Salina Library provides public access to the internet in keeping with our mission to use the transformative power of knowledge and technology to inform, inspire and enrich our community.

Before using the Salina Library’s connection to the internet, you should be aware that:

 

  • Use of the computers in the children’s area is reserved for children from preschool to 5th grade.  Computers in the teen room are reserved for teens in grades 6-12.

 

  • The children’s and teen computers use internet filtering software. No filter is completely accurate.  Filters may falsely block constitutionally protected speech or may fail to block access to illegal or objectionable material.  Computer users have the right to request access to a specific website.

 

  • Parents and designated caregivers are responsible for their minor children’s use of computers, the internet and the wireless network while in the library.

 

  • Not all sources on the Internet provide information that is accurate, complete, current, legal or philosophically acceptable to all citizens.

 

  • The library does not guarantee that any particular website or electronic transaction will work, or be compatible with, library equipment.

 

  • All Internet users are advised to protect personal information and to log out of online accounts they have used during their internet session. The library does not guarantee that any personal information entered is private or secure.

 

  • The library assumes no responsibility for the safety of equipment or for laptop configurations, security, or data files resulting from connection to the internet or wireless network.

  • All users of electronic information resources are expected to use these resources in a responsible manner. If a computer user’s conduct disrupts the library or its computer network, it will be considered a violation of this policy and appropriate action will be taken against the violator.

 

  • Users are required to comply with all licensing and copyright regulations. Responsibility for any possible copyright infringement lies solely with the user.

 

  • Computer users may not view sites that are inappropriate in a public setting or that create a disturbance.

 

  • Teens and children using computers in the Teen and Children’s Areas may not display pictures that are inappropriate for those spaces.

 

  • Wireless users agree to abide by the library’s Internet Access Policy and Computer Use Policy.

 

  • The Internet Access Policy is subject to revision at any time. Internet users are responsible for keeping informed of any changes.

 

  • The library reserves the right to terminate a patron’s computer or Wi-Fi use at any time and without notice.

 

  • Failure to comply with the Internet Access Policy may result in loss of access. Use of the internet for activities that violate library policy or local, state or federal laws is prohibited.  Federal, state and/or local law enforcement agencies may be contacted where the violation involves criminal activity.
