    Computer Use Policy

    The Bloomfield Community Library sees access to the Internet as another resource for information, and seeks to provide public access to Internet resources. While recognizing that the Internet provides access to a vast array of tools and resources for different age levels and points of view, the library does not act in place of the parent and is not responsible for enforcing any restriction that a parent or guardian may place on a minor’s use of this resource. The library will not monitor nor control the information accessed through the Internet and will not be held responsible for its content. Patrons use the computer at their own discretion. Not all resources on the Internet provide accurate, complete or current information. Any inappropriate use will be dealt with at the discretion of the staff.

    Regular computer users must have a current, unrestricted public library card. Guest passes can be issued in accordance with local policy.
    Patrons must use their own library card for access to computers.
    A parent or guardian must accompany children under age 7 at all times (age 5 at the Bloomfield child computers).
    The library will limit the number of patrons present at any computer at any one time in order to enforce code of conduct and consideration for other patrons using the facilities.
    Misuse of Computers and Internet Access
    The Internet will not be used to make sexist or racist insults or hate messages.
    Profanity and pornography will not be tolerated.
    Chain letters or pyramid schemes are illegal in most cases and will not be allowed.
    Transmission of libelous material is illegal and senders may be prosecuted.
