We decided about eight years ago to loosen up our computer policy and bring it in line with how we handle other library materials and minors. This is what our policy now says:

" Internet Access by Your Minor Child

The Library upholds the right of each individual to have access to constitutionally protected material. The Library also affirms the right and responsibility of parents and guardians to determine and monitor their child's use of library materials and resources. The Library encourages parents to inform their child of materials they do not want them to use, and to supervise their child's Internet sessions, regardless of the child's age. The Library also offers computers in the Children's area that are pre-loaded with learning games and that do not have access to the Internet."

Subject: [Libs-Or] protocol for minors using the computers

Hi all...We are going to redo our protocol for minors using our patron computers...as of now we require a parents signature and a copy of a parent's(or guardian's) photo ID...often the school age child will tell us that their parent will not sign or come to the library w/ their photo ID...do you have a different protocol you can share? Thanks Georgi Samuelson Oakridge Public Library
