The Internet, as an information resource, enables the Lewistown Public Library to provide information beyond the confines of its own collection. It allows access to ideas, information, and commentary from around the globe and a vast array of tools and resources for different age levels and points-of-view. The Library does not endorse the viewpoints or vouch for the accuracy of information obtained through the Internet. Internet resources may contain materials of a controversial nature. Selection policies which serve to govern the Library’s purchase of materials are not applicable to material accessed electronically.
The Library cannot censor access to material nor protect users from offensive information. It remains the responsibility of the user (or the parent, guardian, or caregiver) to determine what is appropriate. The Library reserves the right to implement software and hardware control mechanisms, that may be feasible given budgeting and programming limitations, to block information the Library has determined inconsistent with its mission. The Library assumes no responsibility for any damages, direct or indirect, arising from use of its database server or from its connection to other Internet services.
