The Cranbury Public Library provides public access to the Internet, a global network of information accessible with a computer. The Internet offers access to many valuable local, national, and international sources of information, greatly increasing the reference materials available at the library.
The Internet user must be aware that the Internet is not controlled and that anyone or any organization may publish a Web page on the Internet. Some information found on the Internet may be inaccurate, incomplete, dated, or offensive to some individuals. A good information consumer must evaluate the validity and appropriateness of each Web site and the information found there.
Parents and legal guardians must assume responsibility for their children and decide if the Internet is an appropriate resource for their children to use. Parents and legal guardians should guide their children in the use of the Internet and inform them about materials they should not view or use.
To assist the public in the use of the Internet, the library contains various materials on Internet use and periodically holds classes on using the Internet. The Web sites linked to from our Recommended Websites, while not produced by the Cranbury Public Library, have been chosen because they have been found to be worthwhile reference sources in the past. However, the Internet is not static and information and links can change. Also, be aware that the Internet is a “web” of information and links may take the user from a reputable information source to one of questionable value.
