6.003 Internet Access

Replaces 09/21/2011

The First Amendment of the United States Constitution protects the rights of citizens from governmental intrusion into what they see, hear, view and read. It also applies to people accessing content on the Internet. With the exception of the public computers in Kids’ World and the Hub, the library’s public computers do not have filtering software.

The public computers in Kids’ World and the Hub are filtered to limit access to known sexually explicit material. Even with filtering software in place, there can be no complete assurance about the appropriateness of Internet content for any particular age group.

Parents have the option of restricting their children under the age of twelve to using only the filtered computers in Kids’ World. Use of the library’s wireless network is also filtered in Kids’ World and the Hub.

Much of the library’s computing equipment can be used to access the Internet. The library assumes responsibility only for the information contained on the websites of the Arlington Heights Memorial Library.

The library reserves the right to suspend the use of its computers and/or the library by anyone who uses library computing equipment, electronic devices or a network for an illegal purpose or for a purpose in violation of the standards outlined in Policy 7.001 – Library’s Code of Conduct.

6.012 Patron-Generated Content

The Library offers various venues in which patrons can contribute content that is accessible to the public.  These include, but are not limited to, blogs, reviews, forums, and social tagging on the Library’s website and catalog.  Any instance in which a patron posts written or recorded content to any of the Library’s venues that are accessible to the public is considered “patron-generated content” and is subject to this policy.
By contributing patron-generated content, patrons grant the Library an irrevocable, royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual right and license to use, copy, modify, display, archive, distribute, reproduce and create derivative works based upon that content.
By submitting patron-generated content, patrons warrant they are the sole authors or that they have obtained all necessary permission associated with copyrights and trademarks to submit such content.
Patrons are liable for the opinions expressed and the accuracy of the information contained in the content they submit.  The Library assumes no responsibility for such content.
The Library reserves the right not to post submitted content or to remove patron-generated content for any reason, including but not limited to:
  • content that is profane, obscene, or pornographic;
  • content that is abusive, discriminatory or hateful on account of race, national origin, religion, age, gender, disability, or sexual orientation;
  • content that contains threats, personal attacks, or harassment;
  • content that contains solicitations or advertisements;
  • content that is invasive of another person’s privacy;
  • content that is unrelated to the discussion or venue in which it is posted;
