The Niobrara County Library Board of Trustees and staff support intellectual freedom and does not control or censor databases or services available on public computers or through the internet.
The World Wide Web Internet connection provides access to other computer systems throughout the world. Some of the most current and up-to-date sources of information today are only available via the internet. Network users are advised that some systems contain material that may be considered offensive, illegal, and/or inaccurate.
The library staff has no control over the information accessed through the internet and cannot be held responsible for its content. As with other library materials, restriction of a child's access to the internet is the responsibility of the parent or legal guardian. Parents must sign a consent to use the internet prior to the use of children up to the age of 14.
Computers are available on a first come, first serve basis. However, reservations may be made in advance. Users must sign in at the circulation desk at each use and are limited to 60 minutes use per visit, unless no one is waiting to utilize the computers then use may continue. Print outs of computerized documents, etc. are assessed at $.25 per page.
Library staff is available to assist users as needed. It is requested that patrons who are not experienced computers ask for assistance.
