Using the computers in Kids' World and the Hub

The Wi-Fi networks and computers in Kids' World and the Hub have an Internet filtering service that blocks websites that are deemed inappropriate, but may not block access to all materials that may be deemed offensive.

Even with this filter in place, the library cannot provide complete assurance about the appropriateness of Internet content for any particular age group.  

The library affirms the right and responsibility of parents and caregivers to decide which library resources are appropriate for their children and to monitor their children's use of library resources, including Internet computer use.
