Anyone misusing or damaging the computer, or using the Internet for illegal purposes may have their library privileges suspended, be prosecuted and be financially liable for any damage to the equipment.
Since the Internet is a global electronic network there is no federal/provincial control over its users on contents. The Internet may contain inaccurate material or material of a controversial nature. The library cannot censor access to material nor protect users from inaccurate or offensive information. Parents of minor children must assume responsibility for their children’s use of the Internet.
