The Internet, as an information
resource enables the library to provide access to information, ideas, and
commentary from around the globe. It offers access to material that is
personally, professionally, and culturally enriching to individuals of all
ages. It also enables access to some material that may be offensive, disturbing
and /or illegal. Additionally, not all sources on the Internet provide
accurate, complete, unbiased or current information.
Craven-Pamlico-Carteret Regional Library does not monitor and has no control
over the information accessed through the Internet and cannot be held
responsible for its content. C-P-C RL neither censors access to materials nor
protects users from information they find offensive. Library users access the
Internet at their own discretion and they are responsible for their children’s
use of the Internet.
Library encourages you to be a responsible and considerate citizen in your use
of the Internet and World Wide Web in this public setting. Internet use will be
managed in a manner consistent with the Library’s Patron Conduct Policy.
