Andover Public Library/Public Computer Statement

  • Andover Public Library (APL) embraces the First Amendment Right to Free Speech in that censorship is in violation of the United States Constitution, and also embraces the American Library Association’s Free Speech Protection Act of 2008.

  • The 10 station computer lab is open to the entire public, both patrons and non-patrons.

  • “All internet resources accessible through the library are provided equally to all library users. Parents or guardians, not the library or its staff, are responsible for the Internet information selected and/or accessed by their children. Parents – and only parents – may restrict their children – and only their children – from access to Internet resources accessible though the library. Parents and guardians are strongly advised to supervise their children’s internet use.”         – From APL Internet Policy

  • “In response to advances in technology and the changing needs of the community, APL endeavors to develop collections, resources and services that meet the cultural, informational, recreational, and educational needs of Andover’s diverse community. It is within this context that APL offers access to the Internet.” – From APL Internet Policy

  If an APL computer user is seen viewing inappropriate or offensive material – sexually explicit or illegal/criminal as defined by law – we address the issue  according to privacy policy/First Amendment Rights. We would love to address all  of your questions. If you have other questions or concerns, please ask for a  general complaint form at the front desk so that our director can respond to your  concerns in writing in more detail.
