Helping people connect with the digital world is a core service of the Duluth Public Library. In order to provide this service, the Library allows people of all ages access to the internet on library computers and on their own personal devices via a public wireless connection. The library meets the federal requirements for filtering the Internet as mandated by the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA). This policy, along with filtering on all library workstations and non-library equipment accessing the Internet, will be used to make internet use at the library as safe and enjoyable as possible.
The library does not accept responsibility for any information found on the Internet. Internet resources are not selected or reviewed by library staff, therefore users may occasionally encounter material online that they may find false or inappropriate. The filtering software used by the library is not infallible. Library users must exercise their own judgment when using the Internet.
Library users 17 or older may request unfiltered access to the Internet on library workstations. Staff may ask for photo identification to verify age in compliance with CIPA.
All Internet use at the library is subject to the following requirements and guidelines.
The library expects its users to use the Internet responsibly, and to respect the rights of others. When using the Internet at the library the following is not allowed:
A child’s use of the Internet in the library is the responsibility of that child’s parent or guardian. Parents or guardians are encouraged to learn about safe use of the Internet and develop rules for their children regarding sharing of personal information using email, social networking, and chat sites.
Failure to follow the rules and guidelines outlined in this policy may result in the loss of Internet privileges at the Duluth Public Library.
The Duluth Public Library’s policies are subject to change without notice.
