The Vermillion Public Library has recently updated its Internet policy, technology center rules, and Internet agreements. To ensure everyone is aware of the new policies and procedures relating to the updates, starting on Sept. 4, we will be asking all patrons to sign a new agreement form. At this time they will also be given a copy of the new policy, the technology center rules, and a "tech center" card, which can be shown to the library staff when signing up to use the center. Patrons under 16 years old must have a parent come to the library to sign an agreement on their behalf. The new policy, rules, and agreement will also be posted on the library's Website at http://vpl.sdln.net/policies_&_procedures.htm.
