Using the Internet at Jervis Public Library

The Internet is a very popular and valuable resource. We are fortunate to be able to provide a number of computers for accessing the Internet from the library. Much of our equipment has been purchased thanks to grants and private donations. Please read the library's Internet Access Policy which states the library's philosophy about providing access to the Internet.

Although we have been able to provide a number of access points, there are still times when demand outstrips availability of computers. We have, therefore, established General Computer Rules of Use which outline procedures we follow at the library to ensure fair and equitable access to this limited resource. Please refer to specific Computer Rules of Use for the Children's Room, the Fowler Technology Lab, and the Main Reading Room. By adhering to these rules and procedures as well as the library's Rules of Behavior, everyone will have the opportunity to use the Internet in an atmosphere conducive to study and research.

For those who want additional information about using the Internet, the library has a number of books available for patrons to check out about all aspects of computer use, including the Internet. The library offers a series of classes to assist patrons in the use of library computers. These classes include Basic Computer Skills, Introduction to the Internet, Intermediate Internet, and Introduction to Email. Class sizes are limited, so stop by the Information Desk to register, or call the library at (315)336-4570.
