Milton Public Library provides public access to the Internet in keeping with our mission statement in which "The Milton Public Library empowers the community to: Read. Learn. Create. Connect. ". Throughout this policy, "Internet Services" refers to access to the Internet from the Library's computers and through its wireless connections.
The Internet is an unregulated global electronic network. It offers access to information, ideas, commentary and images which are stored on computers outside of the jurisdiction of the Milton Public library.
The Internet offers access to information, ideas, commentary and images which range from accurate, complete, and reliable to offensive, controversial, and/or illegal. The Milton Public Library does not guarantee the accuracy of non-library information obtained through the Internet.
The Library assumes responsibility for the information provided on the Library's website. Staff have chosen to link to websites that fall within the broad guidelines of the Library's Material Selection Policy. Beyond this, the Library does not monitor or control any of the information available from the website.
Links to information resources do not imply endorsement.
The Library supports the right and responsibility of parents or legal guardians to determine and monitor their children's use of Library materials and resources.
Parents are encouraged to supervise their child's Internet sessions and to inform the child if there are resources they do not want the child to access. The Library does not restrict the access of children to any information, resources and facilities in the Library, unless proscribed by legislation.
The Library will not provide any technical support for any equipment not owned by the Library, such as personal laptops.
Internet access computers are situated in a public area shared by patrons of all ages. Patrons are asked to consider this and to make every effort to safeguard their confidential, personal or business information. Patrons are guests of the system and should act with respect and consideration for one another.
