An adult, 18 years or older must accompany children 13 and younger. The person assisting a child must stay with the child and may not leave the child or use another computer while sitting with child. A Child 14 to 17 may use the computer unsupervised.

Children are your responsibility while they are in the Library.

Privacy and Confidentiality

Users will respect the privacy of other users, and will refrain from attempting to view or read materials being used by others. The Oklahoma Privacy Act prohibits unauthorized disclosure, use or Publication of personal information regarding Library users, including minors.

The Library does not accept any responsibility for the accuracy or validity of information obtained from the various informational sources on the internet.

Users have the right of confidentiality and privacy. However, security is technically difficult to achieve and the computer is located in a public area. As a result, the Library cannot guarantee privacy or confidentiality and cannot be held responsible.
