Libraries and the Internet Toolkit
- Internet access in public libraries is as common as books. Almost all public library outlets offer public access to the Internet.
- Public libraries offering Internet access have Internet use policies.
- For people without computers at home, work or school, libraries are the number one point of access to the Internet.
- Research has shown filters block at least one out of five sites containing legal, useful information. They failed to block an average of 20 percent of material defined as undesirable.
