Children using computers and internet enabled devices
While library staff will assist children in the safe use of the internet, this does not mean that the staff accept the responsibility for supervising that use. Parents and caregivers have the primary responsibility for supervising their children’s use of the internet while using Tauranga City libraries computers and accessing the public wifi network.
