Illegal acts involving library computing resources may be
subject to prosecution by local, state or federal authorities.
Use of library computers is a privilege - not a

of privileges until further notice.
Examples of such inappropriate actions leading to suspension
include but are not limited to the following:
Changing any of any pre-set computer settings.
Unauthorized tampering with the computer software or
Violation of software license agreements and copyright laws.
Violation of another user’s privacy.
Loud and unruly behavior and/or using offensive language.
The Library staff reserves the right not to print or
assist patrons with any subject matter that violates another
user’s and/or staff’s right not to be offended verbally,
sexually or be exposed to obscenity.
Internet Policy for the Public
The staff of the Library maintains a homepage with recommended links in
order to facilitate use of the Internet. Users should
recognize that the Library is not responsible for changes to
the content of linked sites, or for the content of sources
accessed through subsequent links.
Since the Library computers on which the public can access the
Internet are located in public areas which are shared by users
of all ages, backgrounds and sensibilities, individuals are
asked to consider this when accessing potentially
controversial information and images. Library staff reserves
the right to ask individuals to discontinue the display of
information and images which may cause a disruption.
The Library upholds and affirms the right of each individual
to have access to constitutionally protected material. The
Library also affirms the right and responsibility of parents
to determine and monitor their own children's use of library
materials and resources.
Library computers will not be used for illegal activity, to
access illegal materials, or to access materials, which by
local community standards would be obscene.
Installation, downloading, or modification of software is
Users will respect copyright laws and licensing agreements.
Users will not make any attempt to gain unauthorized access to
restricted files or networks, or to damage or modify computer
equipment or software.
Users will respect the privacy of other users, and will
refrain from attempting to view or read material being used by
By mutual agreement, two persons may share one access session
as long as their behavior or conversation does not disturb
other users or Library staff.
Library computers may not be used for spamming.
Fees for the use of Library computers, if any, will be
determined by the Board of Trustees.
The Library reserves the right to apply restrictions as
outlined in Library procedures.
The Library avoids collecting or maintaining records that
could compromise the privacy of patrons. Nevertheless,
Internet users must also exercise caution when using the
internet to avoid unauthorized disclosure, use, and
dissemination of personal identification information. Parents
must caution their minor children that personal personal facts
are not to be shared on the Internet.
When you use the Internet, you access a world of resources and
organizations far beyond the confines of the Markham Public
Library. Our home page offers a selection of Internet sites
which we think you'll find informative and useful. However, we
cannot take responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of
Internet sources not created by the Library. As a user, you
should be aware that some material on the Internet may be
considered offensive, controversial, or inappropriate for
children. Parents or legal guardians are responsible for
monitoring the Internet use of children under 18.
