Internet Access. The Nederland Community Library (NCL) provides access to the internet as a service to the community. The internet contains a wide variety of material and opinions from various points of view. Not all sources provide information that is accurate, complete or current and some information may be considered offensive or inappropriate to users. While NCL is sensitive to the concerns of users about internet content, no one, including the library, can control the information available on the internet. Everyone is responsible for his or her own use of the internet in the library. The library assumes no responsibility for the safety of equipment or for laptop configurations, security, or data files resulting from connection to the wireless network. The Nederland Community Library complies with state and federal law mandating the use of filtering software in public libraries. Both internet computers and wireless access are filtered for obscene or harmful websites in accordance with the Federal Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) and Colorado Library Law, C.R.S. 24-90-601, part 6. Users should be aware that filtering software is inherently imprecise and flawed and may not block information that some individuals may consider offensive, inaccurate, or inappropriate. Additionally, the filter may limit access to sites which have legitimate research value. Due to technological limitations, the library cannot guarantee that the filter will protect against access to internet material that is illegal, obscene, or potentially harmful to minors. NCL may not infringe on users’ First Amendment rights other than as provided by law.
Violations. The Library staff does not actively monitor computer and Internet use. If it comes to the staff’s attention that patrons are using library computers in violation of library policy, patrons will be reminded of the policy and asked to stop immediately. Patrons engaging in disruptive behavior, illegal activities and/or conduct in violation of library policy will be asked to stop the offending behavior immediately. Patrons who refuse to comply with library rules and policy can lose computer privileges and may be required to leave the library.
