The Internet is a world-wide collection of computer networks which facilitates access to a wide range of information resources. Bayliss Public Library cannot guarantee and is not responsible for the accuracy, truthfulness, or content of any website accessed using library machines.
Internet access is provided as a supplement to the physical collection owned by the library. The following uses are forbidden: accessing obscene or pornographic websites; displaying information or images harmful to minors; accessing websites promoting illegal activities; viewing, distributing, transmitting, or promoting hate-related speech, crimes, or subversive activities. Evidence of such activities will be reported to the appropriate authorities. Users are responsible for the site they reach during their use of the library's Internet connection.
The library's Internet accessible computers are filtered under state and federal law. Users aged 18 and over may request unfiltered access for research purposes.
Due to the risk of computer viruses, users are not allowed to download programs from the Internet, even if they will be saving it to disk. Text and images may be downloaded freely as long as such use does not violate copyright laws. Users must save files to a disk.
The Bayliss Public Library provides free wireless Internet access point or "hot spot" for users with portable computers or devices capable of receiving wireless signals, during normal Library business hours. This access point allows users to access the Internet from their laptop computer or other wireless device when they are within its range.
