Policies govern many aspects of Glen Ellyn Public Library and are approved by Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees may modify or amend these policies at any time.

Access to Evolving Technology Policy

Last Revised: May 20, 2024

Glen Ellyn Public Library is committed to providing technology necessary to meet visitor expectations with respect to its primary mission and functions. In this regard the library’s strongest priority is to support and maintain the library website, the online catalog, and access to all other electronic reference databases and software available on its computers.

In fulfilling its primary mission, the Glen Ellyn Public Library also maintains and makes available Internet access which visitors may utilize to access other Internet sites not directly related to the library’s primary mission. While the library and its staff are committed to making such access available, the library cannot guarantee visitor satisfaction in accessing these other sites with the same commitment and support provided to the delivery of its primary services.

Free wireless Internet access is provided to library visitors inside the library building and in the library parking lot. Visitors are responsible for configuring their own wireless equipment.

Visitors’ experiences with websites may vary and may be beyond the control of the Glen Ellyn Public Library and its staff.

Glen Ellyn Public Library is in compliance with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA). To the extent practical, technology protection measures (or “Internet Filters”) shall be used to block or filter Internet, or other forms of electronic communications, access to inappropriate information. Specifically, as required by CIPA, blocking shall be applied to visual depictions of material deemed obscene or child pornography, or to any material deemed harmful to minors.

Subject to staff supervision, technology protection measures may be disabled for adults age 17 or over upon proof of age or, in the case of minors, minimized only for bona fide research or other lawful purposes.
