The Hanover Township Library Board recognizes the importance of computers and the Internet in the lives of people in today’s world. Thus, we have worked to provide the public up-to-date computers and high speed internet access. We also recognize the need to maintain the computers in a usable condition and the community’s interest in having the library a safe place for all to use. Therefore, certain rules will apply to the use of the library's computers. This list is not intended to state all unacceptable or acceptable behaviors concerning computer use.
