Internet computers are for use by patrons to engage in educational, recreational and instructional activities. Illegal or unethical activities, as well as commercial transactions, are prohibited. Information on the Internet may be outdated, incorrect, or biased. Please critically evaluate all information.

Displaying material that may be considered obscene or offensive is prohibited. The library staff will be the sole arbiter of what constitutes unacceptable content. Patrons must sign the Internet registration sheet before using the Internet computers, including your name and your library card number.

Use of the Library’s Internet computers is on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited to 1 hour when others are waiting.

While Library staff will assist users in accessing the Internet, users are nevertheless responsible for their own searches.

Displaying material that may be considered obscene or offensive is prohibited.

The Internet may contain material that is inappropriate for viewing by children. The Brentwood Library prohibits minors from accessing Internet and on-line sites that contain or make reference to explicit sexual material as defined by 18 PA, C.S., Section 5903. The library staff can not monitor and supervise children’s use of the Internet. As with other library materials, restriction of a child’s access to the Internet is the responsibility of the parent/legal guardian. Adult supervision of children using the Internet is strongly advised.

Chat rooms are not permitted at any time.

Internet privileges will be revoked if you:

  • Display materials that could be construed as obscene or offensive
  • Use the connection for purposes that would break any local, state, or federal law
  • Damage, misuse, reprogram, or tamper with the library’s computer equipment or software
  • Enter a chat room
  • Use personal software programs
  • Print without paying for copies
  • Act in a way that the library staff deems inappropriate.
