Minors and the Internet



The Ecorse Public Library subscribes to Open DNS Enterprise as our Library filtering agent for our electronic resources.  In compliance  with Section 6 of the Michigan Library Privacy Act (Act 212 of the Public Acts of 2000) and the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA).


Parental supervision of Minors using electronic equipment is strongly encouraged and advised. Parents and legal guardians assume responsibility for deciding what is appropriate for their children and should discuss the responsibilities of usage, including safety and security when using electronic mail, chat rooms and other forms of electronic communications with their children.  The Library does not directly or remotely monitor anyone’s use of the computers, including minors.  However, the library will react to a report of inappropriate use.  In addition, Minors must use their own library card when accessing the Library’s electronic equipment or the Internet.  Parents are encouraged to discuss the Library’s policies concerning the Internet with their children.  Failure of their children to adhere to the Library’s Computer/Internet Policy may result in the loss of electronic privileges.
