Internet Access Policies
The Waterboro Public Library, as part of its ongoing commitment to provide information resources to its patrons and the citizens of Waterboro, is connected to the Internet. The library serves as both a point to the Internet (including the World Wide Web) through computers available for patron use, and also as an information provider through the library's website at:
In order to best serve the citizens of the town of Waterboro, and to act as a good citizen on the Internet, the Board of Trustees of the Waterboro Public Library has adopted the following policies:
- Publicly accessible computers are available for educational, informational, and recreational uses. Anyone without a library card may apply for one or use a visitor's card.
- The library's computers shall not be used for illegal purposes.
- The library does not censor or filter incoming content from the Internet. As there is content available that is not suitable for children, parents or guardians are responsible for supervising the information their children view. Users of computers in the children's room must refrain from viewing material unsuitable for children.
- Computers are available on a first come, first served basis. Each user must sign in with a staff member prior to and following each computer use. A 45-minute time period will be allowed. More time may be allowed at the discretion of the librarian.
- No computer user shall install and/or use any software not present on the system as configured by the staff, nor shall they change the web browser's Home Page from the Waterboro Public Library site.
- Computer users may access personal web-based email accounts (hotmail, yahoo.com, etc.) but may not configure email client software (Outlook Express, etc.) for their own personal use. The library does not filter or restrict email content in any way. In accordance with NCIPA Guideline #2, parents/guardians of minors are urged to supervise minor's use of such email accounts.
- In accordance with the State of Maine's statute regarding confidentiality of patron information, (27 M.R.S.A. Section 121) the library does not keep any patron Internet use history. Histories are purged after each user session as librarian time allows, or daily at a minimum.
