Children's Internet Access
CHILDREN’S INTERNET ACCESS
The Indiana Free Library will offer limited access to the Internet in the Children's Department for children up to 12 years of age. Children must register at the desk in the Children's Department. Parents must read the Library's Internet Policy and sign a parental consent form. A parent or guardian must accompany children under the age of 8 years when using the Internet. Children 8 years or older may use the Internet independently after a parental consent form has been signed.
For the protection and safety of the young children, the Library will place a filter on the Internet in the Children's Department. This filter is not infallible. Parents are advised to supervise their children's Internet sessions. Parents or guardians, not the Library or its staff, are responsible for the Internet information selected and/or accessed by their children. Parents--and only parents--may restrict their children--and only their children—from access to Internet resources accessible through the library.
The library will offer access to the Internet to children 12 - 18 years in the Young Adult area of the first floor when a parental consent form is signed at the Front Desk. Computers located in the Reference Area are reserved for adult patrons.
