Fort Nelson Public Library’s Internet Policy:

The Library endeavours to provide its patrons with the opportunity to use current technology and resources. The library recognizes the Internet as a valuable information resource. Illegal activities or inappropriate (eg. pornography) use of the computers will result in denial of access in the future. Our Internet Use Policy places the responsibility for information access to the Internet on the patron. We will not be held responsible for the content or the accuracy of information to patrons. As with other library material, restriction of a child’s access is the responsibility of the parent/legal guardian. Copying information from the Internet may be in violation of copyright laws and doing so is at the discretion of the patron. Fees will be assessed by the Library for this service. The Fort Nelson Public Library has also adopted the Canadian Library Association’s Statement on Intellectual Freedom. Please read the Internet Use Rules below and also the Canadian Library Association’s Statement on Intellectual Freedom.
