The resources available on the Internet contain a wide variety of material from varied points of view. Access points often change rapidly and unpredictably. The Library cannot guarantee the accuracy and/or acceptability of the information you will find and cannot be responsible for its content. Library Internet users are individually responsible for the resources they access. As with all other library materials, parents must assume responsibility for their children's use of the Internet through the Library's connection.
