Internet Access and Wireless Use

PCCLD provides free access to the Internet. There is a daily time limit on customers using PCCLD computers. Customers using their own computers or mobile devices may access PCCLD's electronic resources from PCCLD's web site remotely or via wireless access points within a PCCLD library without any time limitations.

All customers using PCCLD provided databases and computer software are responsible for adhering to applicable database and software licensing agreements including copying, downloading and viewing restrictions. Customers agree to abide by PCCLD's Internet Access Agreement.

To the extent possible, PCCLD upholds and affirms the right of adults to have access to constitutionally-protected materials. Customers accessing the Internet are responsible for complying with all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations. Prohibited content is defined by the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) and the Colorado Revised Statutes, Article 90, Part 6, 24-90-601 through 24-90-606.

PCCLD uses filtering software on customers' access to the Internet in order to comply with the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) and other applicable federal, state and local laws, statutes, and ordinances. PCCLD offers enhanced filtering for minors under the age of 18 and basic filtering for adults. Customers may request library staff to disable filtering temporarily to conduct research or for other lawful purposes on PCCLD provided public computers.

The blocking and unblocking of Internet sites for basic and enhanced filtering shall be described further in PCCLD's Internet Access Agreement. Customers may request that a site be blocked or unblocked by completing a Citizen's Request for Change in Internet Access form. Library staff will evaluate the site and notify the customer of the decision as promptly as possible.

Customers using PCCLD public use computers must agree to maintain the integrity of the computers. Unacceptable use includes, but is not limited to, using the Internet for any illegal purpose, transmitting obscene or threatening materials, and using the system in a manner that precludes or hampers its use by others.

Customers logging onto PCCLD provided public library computers or the Internet are required to consent to the Internet Access and Wireless Use policy and the Internet Access Agreement before using the library's Internet services.
