Policies and Procedures

Who Can Use the Public Computer Center?


Anyone with a Missouri River Regional Library (Missouri River Regional Library) card may use the PCC. Non-cardholders may use it as a guest. Patrons with MRRL cards must present them to use the Public Computer Center. No other form of ID is acceptable. Patrons using the Public Computer Center are considered to have agreed to abide by the two policies that govern patron behavior in the PCC. They are: * Internet Use Policy (IUP) - The IUP outlines rules for use of the Internet. Violating it can result in loss of Internet Privileges for varying lengths of time. For details, see Internet Use Policy. * Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) - The AUP outlines rules for patron behavior in the PCC that do not include Internet use. Violating any of these rules will result in loss of PCC privileges for varying lengths of time. For details, see Rules For Acceptable Use of the PCC.
