Although the Children’s Library has a web filtering system it is important to: 

  • Take responsibility for your child's online computer use. 
  • Get to know the services your child uses. 
  • If you don't know how to log on, get your child to show you. 
  • Get to know your child's "online" friends just as you get to know all of their other friends. 
  • Talk to your child about Internet safety.
