In order to prevent undue disruption of normal library activities, to provide for the general welfare all persons using the library, and to provide for the general safety of children using the Enterprise Public Library, the following policies are adopted:
- All children 6 years and younger shall, at all times, be attended and adequately supervised by an individual 16 years of age or older who is responsible for the care and behavior of the children.
- Children 7 years and older may use the library unattended, subject to the rules and regulations of the Enterprise Public Library.
- At staff discretion, the school will be notified of the presence of unattended children in the library during school hours.
- The Enterprise Public Library assumes no responsibility for children left unattended on library premises.
- The library reserves the right to ask children to leave the building if they behave inappropriately and are unresponsive to staff.
- If any child is left at the library at closing time, the library staff will attempt to reach the parent/guardian. If the parent/guardian cannot be reached, law enforcement officials will be notified.
We want to encourage children to use the library and use it often, but we are concerned about the safety and welfare of children left unattended in a public place. Our staffing is limited, and we are unable to supervise the activity and whereabouts of every child.
Public access to the internet and online services have become an integral part of the Enterprise Public Library programs and services. The intent of this policy is to meet the provisions of the Kansas Children’s Internet Protection Act, as well as provide guidelines for patrons and staff regarding online computer use of Internet accessible computers.
The purpose of the Internet Safety Policy of The Enterprise Public Library is to implement and enforce technology protection measures to: ensure that no minor has access to visual depictions that are child pornography, harmful to minors, or obscene; and ensure that no person has access to visual depictions that are child pornography or obscene while using a public access computer.
Developed under the direction of the Board of the Enterprise Public Library, this Internet Safety Policy was discussed and adopted during an open meeting of the Library Board on 02/07/2020. This policy supersedes all previous Internet Safety Policy statements of the Enterprise Public Library and is effective on 02/07/2020.
This policy document will be reviewed by the Enterprise Public Library Board at least every three years.
The Enterprise Public Library Internet Safety Policy complies with the applicable requirements of subsection (b) and L. 2013, ch. 98, sec.1, and amendments thereto, commonly known as the Kansas Children’s Internet Protection Act.
The Enterprise Public Library has in place a policy of Internet safety for minors, including the operation of a technology protection measure or other process that blocks or filters online access to visual depictions that are child pornography, harmful to minors or obscene as defined in L. 2013, ch. 98, sec.1.
Supervision and Monitoring
Subject to staff supervision, technology protection measures may be disabled only for bona fide research or other lawful purpose.
It shall be the responsibility of all members of the Enterprise Public Library staff to supervise and monitor usage of the online computer network and access to the Internet in accordance with this policy and the Kansas Children’s Internet Protection Act.
Patrons who encounter web sites which they believe should be blocked but which are not, or who are prevented from accessing web sites which they believe should not be blocked may submit a complaint. This should be given I writing to the Library Director in charge and include the URL of the site in question and whether the request is to block or unblocked. If the technology protection measure being used is a regional service, the information and recommendation shall be forwarded to the appropriate regional staff.
Complaints about enforcement of this policy or observed patron behavior which violate this policy shall also be submitted in writing to the Library Director in charge, providing as much detail as possible.
The library shall inform patrons of the provisions of this policy, including the standards used and procedures for complaint, by making the policy available on the library’s web site and in print at the circulation desk.
