All users of electronic information resources such as the Internet are expected to use these resources in a responsible manner, consistent with their educational and informational purposes.  All users must agree to follow the rules and regulations set forth in the Internet Use Policy and Guidelines. The library reserves the right to end a patron’s use of Internet access if the patron breaks any of these rules.  By using Internet access provided at Burlington Public Library, you agree to the following guidelines:
