- Only two people are allowed per workstation in an effort to reduce noise.

The Library's OPLIN computer accesses the Internet, which is a global identity, with a highly diverse population. The Internet and its available resources contain a wide variety of material and opinions from varied points of view some of which may contain controversial, sexually explicit, offensive, or inappropriate material.
The Liberty Center Public Library cannot control sites which often change rapidly and unpredictably. Library patrons use it at their own risk.
As with other library materials, it is the parent or legal guardian of minor children who must assume ultimate responsibility for supervising access to Internet resources in the Library.
Misuse of the Library's OPLIN computer or Internet access will result in the loss of Internet privileges.
