Internet Use Policy

The Harrington Park Public Library offers free access to the Internet on 6 public computers as an informational and educational resource, providing the public with free and equal access to information in print, non-print, and electronic formats. The following rules apply to using the library’s public computers:

  • Access to the library’s computers is on a first come-first served basis.  To insure that computer availability exists for all patrons, the library reserves the right to institute time limits of 30 minutes when others are waiting.

  • Patrons access and use the Internet at their own risk.  The connection provided is NOT secure.  The library has NO control over the information and is NOT responsible for its content or accuracy.

  • Because the library is a public place, the staff reserves the right to end a session when material inappropriate to a public library setting is displayed.

  • Parents of minor children MUST assume responsibility for the materials accessed.  Parental supervision is advised.

  • Staff will help user in getting started but cannot offer extensive assistance.

  • Failure to use the internet workstation properly may result in revocation of internet privileges.

  • Anyone tampering with library computers will lose their internet privileges and be held financially responsible for any needed repairs.

  • During period of high computer use and on school days (between the hours of 3:15 and 5:00 pm), games, nonacademic email, and other non-scholastic computer use is restricted. 

  • There is no charge for the first two black and white prints - 10 cent fee per page after that.  The cost for color prints is 25 cents per page. Students may print 2 color prints per day for free.

The Library may modify this policy at any time.

The Harrington Park Public Library is committed to providing materials, information, services and programs to inform, educate, and enrich the lives of our residents.  We strive to do this in a welcoming environment as we embrace technology and other means of delivering our services within our budgetary constraints.
