Internet Use Policy

  1. The Library, in keeping with its mission to support education, learning, enjoyment, and enrichment, provides internet access. Electronic resources provide unprecedented opportunities to expand the scope of information available to users. The primary use of internet resources at the library will be for educational and informational purposes.
  2. The same principles that guide the use of other Library resources apply to the use of the internet. Lisbon Public Library expects customers to use the internet in a reasonable manner respecting the rights of others and Library Rules of Behavior. The Library does not favor the use of Library equipment to access materials that are obscene, feature child pornography, or is harmful to minors. Use of the internet is a privilege, not a right, and unacceptable use will result in suspension or cancellation of privileges.
  3. The Library assumes no responsibility for damages or financial obligations that a patron may incur, either directly or indirectly, arising from the provisions of internet access. It makes no guarantee, either expressed or implied, with respect to the quality or content of the information available on the internet. Not all information on the internet is accurate, current, or complete.
  4. Some computers have a profile that restricts internet access. The Library and the software company can offer no guarantee that this software will prevent anyone from accessing websites that may be considered personally offensive, controversial, or inappropriate. The Library reserves the right to ask individuals to discontinue the display of information and/or images that can be considered offensive to others. Such activity may result in suspension of internet access privileges. Misuse or abuse of computer equipment or internet access, including any changes to the setup or configuration of software or hardware, may result in suspension of internet access privileges.
  5. Selection policies, which serve to govern the Library’s purchase of written materials, may not apply to material accessed electronically.
  6. Demonstrated intent to violate this policy will be considered the same as an actual policy violation. Demonstrated intent means evidence of actions, which, if successful or carried out as intended, would result in a policy violation. As with other Library materials and service, parents or legal guardians are responsible for information selected or accessed by children. Internet workstations specifically configured for use by children may limit or prevent access to specific internet sites.
