In support of the Albany Public Library's goal "to provide library services supported by the latest technologies", access to the Internet and electronic databases is provided to our customers.
In offering Internet access, the Library takes responsibility only for the information provided on our home page. The Library does not monitor or have control over information that can be accessed over the Internet. The Library is not responsible for its content, or for the confidentiality or illegal use by the customer.
Although the Internet offers access to many valuable local, national and international sources of information, not all sources are accurate, complete, current, or appropriate for all users. In keeping with the American Library Association's Library Bill of Rights, it is the policy of the Library not to limit access to any resource by any segment of the community. Albany Public Library does not use filtering software.
The monitoring of a minor's access to the Internet is the responsibility of that person's parent or legal guardian.
