Internet users must be sensitive to the fact that workstations are in public areas, and therefore, images on the screen are subject to view by a wide audience.

Users will not make any attempt to gain unauthorized access to restricted files or networks, or to damage or modify computer equipment or software. Installation, downloading, or modification of software is also prohibited.
Users will be limited to 60 minutes if others are waiting to use a computer. Library staff may make exceptions to time limits based on demand and individual need. Users must end their session and leave the terminal when asked to do so by library staff.
Users will make prompt payment at the circulation desk when printing materials on the Library’s printers. Black and white copies cost 15 cents, color copies cost 50 cents.
Telephone reservations are not accepted and computers are available on a first-come first-serve basis.
Users will respect the privacy of other users, and will refrain from attempting to view or read material being used by others.
