Mariposa County Library Parental Authorization for Internet Use by Children
(8 through 17 years of Age)
The Internet contains a wide variety of information on many subjects through a global network of computer(s) connections. It allows access to ideas and information from a multitude of resources worldwide. While the Internet offers access to a wealth of local, national, and international information, it also enables access to some materials that may be considered offensive, controversial or distrubing.
It is the responsibility and the right of the parents to determine and monitor their children’s use of library materials and resources, including the Internet. Each parent needs to decide which resources are appropriate for his/her child.
The Library can not control or monitor materials that can be accessed through the Internet. Children under the age of 7 must have an adult sitting at the computer with them. The Copy right law (title 17, U.S. Code) prohibits unauthorized reproduction or distribution of copy right materials; therefore users may not copy or distribute electronically accessed materials without permission of the copyright holder, except as permitted by “fair use’ principles, responsibility for copyright infringement is with the user. The Library disclaims liability
resulting from such infringements. Modifying or attempting to damage computer equipment or software is vandalism to Library property and may result in legal action.
I have read the parent Authorization for Internet Use Statement and I authorize my child’s use of the Internet at the Mariposa County Library. I understand that by signing the Authorization my child can access all material on the Internet. I further agree and acknowledge that the County shall in no way be responsible for any material accessed by my child on the Library’s computers.
