  • Any activity that violates the Watonga Public Library Personal Conduct policy.
  • Harassment of other library users or staff by any means.
  • Destruction or damage of equipment or other library property.

Filtering

All Internet access (including wireless) at the Watonga Public Library will be filtered. The intent of the filter is to protect adults and minors from a) visual depictions that are obscene, b) child pornography, and c) that which is considered harmful to minors (with respect to use of the computers with Internet access).

The presence of filtering software does not guarantee that ALL offensive sites will be blocked. Parents are encouraged to talk to minors about Internet Safety. The user will not hold the library or the City of Watonga responsible for the content or availability of material on the Internet. Parents who are concerned about their children’s activity online should monitor the child’s Internet session.

Any questions regarding the filter or this policy should be directed to the Library Director.
