Computer/Internet Policy
The Hartland Public Library is committed to providing its patrons with the best materials possible
for seeking information. The Hartland Public Library espouses the basic principles governing
information freedom and access as outlined in the American Library Association’s Library Bill of Rights. The library and its patrons must observe all applicable local, state, and federal laws
governing information access.


Child Accompaniment 
In general, parents should not view the library as an alternative to daycare or afterschool care. Staff members are not in the position to supervise children except when in scheduled library programs. Understand that the library does not act in loco parentis (in place of the parent) which is the standard held in the public schools. More Info


Video conferencing
The Hartland Public Library video conferencing system may be used by individuals and groups on a first come, first served basis. Groups must follow our meeting room policy, with the exceptions that for-profit groups may use a meeting room if they are using the video conferencing system, and video conferencing meetings do not need to be open to the public. Groups may not use video conferencing equipment if the primary purpose is to sell a product or promote a business. More Info

Users of the equipment must attend a video conferencing training session and should arrange a training session with the library director at least one week in advance. Groups must also fill out a meeting room booking form. More info
