Computer Patron Policies
The Library of Graham wants to ensure the citizens of our community have the right and means to free and open access to a diverse collection of materials which meet their recreational, information, and independent learning needs. That is why we offer free computers with internet access to our card holding patrons. The library acknowledges that the internet is an unregulated medium. The Library of Graham does not monitor and has no control over the information accessed through the internet and cannot be held responsible for its content. Be aware that some information found on the internet is of mature nature and may not be suitable for children. As with other library materials, restrictions of a child’s access to the internet are the responsibility of the parent or legal guardian.
~ Computer/internet users must have a current library card.
~ When registering to use computers/internet for the first time, patrons will be directed to read, here on our website, the rules and policies regulating public use of the internet. Patrons will be asked to sign an Internet User Agreement.
~ Those under the age of 18 must have their user agreement signed by a parent or legal guardian before they will be allowed access. Children under 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian during usage.
~ Computer access is available during regular hours, on a first come, first served basis. Usage time is limited to 2 hours. Computer passes are checked out and returned to the circulation desk. Computers are shut down 20 minutes before closing.
~ One patron at a time on a computer. The patron checking out computer time is the only one allowed to use it. Computer passes may not be given to another person.
~ You may download material to a personal pin drive or print it out. No downloads to the computer hard drive are allowed.
~ Internet users may not access inappropriate or illegal materials including but not limited to material of an obscene nature or access materials that by local community standards would be objectionable. The library director reserves the right to determine what is to be considered objectionable.
~ Failure to use our computer/internet rules and policies appropriately and responsibly may result in revocation of computer/internet use.
~ Due to staffing limitations, staff highly familiar with the internet may not be available to assist you.
