Computer Use

 

Computer Use

Internet use is a privilege, not a right. 

All patrons must follow our computer use policy or their privileges may be revoked.


The Vegreville Centennial Library has the following computers: 
  • 1 Library catalogue (TRACpac)   
  • 1 Microsoft Office computer (with printer)    
  • 6 public internet access computers     
  • 2 in the children’s area (no internet access), for children’s games. 

Patrons may use public internet access computers for up to one hour per day. After 3:00 PM on weekdays and all day weekends, internet usage will be limited to one half hour, unless there is no one waiting, in which case another half hour will be granted. 

Patrons may use the other computers for as long as they like, but they must vacate their space in a timely manner if someone else is waiting.
Computer use is unsupervised, and Library staff are not responsible for the content that any patron, whether adult or child, accesses either via library computers or the library's wireless network. 

Patrons will not distribute or view any material that affronts human dignity or deprives any person, whether adult or child, of his or her rights.  Patrons will not display or view anything considered pornographic, whether of adults or children.

Patrons must bring in their own headphones if viewing or listening to anything on computers.  Computer use cannot be disruptive to other patrons.

A parent/guardian must sign an Acceptable Use Agreement prior to any child under 18 years using the public internet access computers.

Please ask prior to using CDs, CD-ROMs or flash drives as certain computers will not allow media to work.

Printing from the word processing computer costs 25¢ per page, $1.00 per page for colour copies.
