Computer & Internet Use
The Hazelton District Public Library offers to all patrons and visitors with up to 60 minutes of free public Internet access per day. The library is equipped with three public workstations. Black and white printing is available at a rate of $0.25 per printed page.
We also provide free wireless Internet access (Wi-Fi) with no password needed.
By making use of library equipment to access the Internet, you agree to the following rules:
- Sign in with your library card’s barcode number and password at the workstation you wish to use for Internet purposes.
- Consider those around you when choosing what to view on library computers. Your computer screen will be visible to everyone passing by and we therefore ask that you refrain from viewing potentially offensive material in the library.
- Our public terminals are not secure, therefore it is not advisable to give out personal identifying information or credit card numbers.
- To share the resource with as many people as possible, your time will be limited. Please respect your daily time limits to avoid suspension of your access privileges.
- Report any error messages or other technical difficulties to library staff.
You, not the Hazelton District Public Library, are responsible for your activities on the Internet. Users who abuse their computer access privileges or engage in any illegal or unethical activity on library equipment may have their access suspended or revoked.
Internet Use by Children
If you have concerns about your child accessing inappropriate material online, filtered Internet access is available on all the library’s public workstations. To use the filtered web browser, children simply need to click on the “Kids” icon when they log in.
The library does not monitor children’s use of library services and collections. We encourage parents to take an active role in their children’s internet use and teach them about the importance of not revealing personal information online.
We remind patrons of any age, the library does not take responsibility for what children access in the library collection or online.
