Robeson County Public Library Internet Policy

  • I attest that I have read and understand the Robeson County Public Library Internet use policy below. 

    Internet service is available as a privilege to our patrons. To use the computers a valid library card or photo ID must be presented. Each person using the computer must use their own valid library card or identification. All Robeson County residents who wish to use the public access computers must obtain a library card. Guest passes are available with a valid ID as a courtesy to visitors to the county for one time or occasional use only.  Children under 13 must have a parent or responsible adult at that computer with them at all times. Library cards registered to children under 13 will not provide computer access. 

    You may not use your cell phone in the computer area.
    You will not be able to log onto the computers or check out materials if you have fines over $10.00 on your account.

     

    • The library reserves the right to place a time limit on computer use, to require users to have and/or display their library cards during Internet use, and to charge for printouts.
