The library does not monitor and has no control over the information accessed over the Internet and is not responsible for its content. Users are responsible for the choice of sites that they visit.

The Harrison Memorial Library supports the democratic principle of the citizen's right to free access to information. The library endorses the Library Bill of Rights including Access to Digital Information, Services, and Networks as adopted by the American Library Association.
