Library Computers for Children

 

Each library has computers designated exclusively for use by children:

  • Multimedia CD-ROM stations with educational games for ages 3 - 12
  • Internet stations for ages 6 - 12
  • Word processing and printing for homework needs

 

Internet Use & Safety 

  

The Internet and World Wide Web contain many different kinds of materials, and links can lead in unexpected directions. The W-TCPL Child Safety Policy states that it is the responsibility of each child's parent or legal guardian to monitor that child's net access.
