The internet is a global entity with a highly diverse user population; library customers use it at their own risk. Internet users should be aware that not all online sources provide accurate, complete or current information. Provision of internet service does not imply that the Burlington County Library System endorses or approves of any material accessed.
The Burlington County Library System provides internet access on PCs which are filtered appropriately for youth and adult areas of the library. Even with filtering, some websites that are inappropriate in a library setting may be displayed. Unfiltered internet access is available upon completion of the Unfiltered Internet Access Request form. For children under the age of 18, the child’s parent or legal guardian must be present to complete the form. Because the library is a public place, library staff has the authority to end an internet session when such material displays.
Parents or guardians, not the library or its staff, are responsible for online information selected and/or accessed by their children. It is recommended that parents monitor their child’s internet use in the library, whether using the library’s computers or their own laptops.
Customers must use their own library card to access the computers. Sharing of cards for this purpose is not permitted and could result in the suspension of computer use privileges for the cardholder.
Printers are attached to the library’s Internet PCs. Black and white and color prints are available at .10 per page. Color prints are .20 per page. Two-sided printing is available. Customers providing their own paper will also pay these rates. Regarding the wireless service, printers are not available for use with the customer’s equipment.
Wireless Internet Access (All polices above apply)
We offer wireless access at all our branches and member sites. As with our Internet service, your information may not be secure and therefore customers use it at their own risk. Customers are responsible for configuring their own devices.
Most users can simply bring their wireless-enabled device to the library and turn it on. The computer will automatically recognize the network: library_wifi
