  • Patrons under 18 (eighteen) years of age that wish to use the computers must be accompanied by a parent, guardian, or teacher.
  • Patrons are asked to be considerate of others and not to display materials which others may consider objectionable.
  • Users are responsible for determining the reliability of material accessed from the Internet.
  • Patrons are expected to uphold the security of the computer hardware and software by not: damaging hardware, modifying, downloading, or installing software; or evading security controls.
