Public Fax Service is now being offered at all Lane Libraries. Please see any Information Services Librarian to use the service.
The Lane Public Library strives to provide information of public interest to the residents of the communities it serves. In keeping with this concept, community groups are encouraged to present fliers, brochures, and informational materials to the libraries for placement on information racks and bulletin boards. The following will not be accepted:
Items for distribution and/or posting should be taken to the Public Relations office or left at the Information Desk or drive-thru window at any location. The library does not guarantee the availability of space and may have to restrict the number of copies approved for display. Information rack and display space will be used for Lane Public Library information on a priority basis. Public use will be subject to availability of space. Acceptance of materials for display does not indicate Lane Public Library endorsement of a group or organization, its policies, or beliefs. All materials presented will be subject to review by the Branch Head at each location.
The library reserves the right to refuse acceptance of display and information materials at any time.

The library endeavors to develop collections, resources, and services to meet the needs of the diverse population in our service area of Butler County. It is within this context that Lane Public Library offers access to the Internet via the Ohio Public Information Network (OPLIN) and other avenues.
Information available through the Internet and OPLIN is not warranted by Lane Public Library or by OPLIN to be accurate, authoritative, factual, or complete. The availability of networked information via Lane Public Library does not constitute any endorsement or ratification of that information. Lane Public Library and OPLIN are not responsible for the content of networked information available. The use of the Internet and OPLIN to engage in any activity that constitutes violation of local, state, and/or federal laws is strictly prohibited.
All users of the service agree to hold Lane Public Library and OPLIN harmless from any and all claims, losses, damages, obligations, or liabilities directly or indirectly relating to the use of the Internet and OPLIN, caused thereby or arising therefrom. In no event shall Lane Public Library or OPLIN have any liability for lost profits or for indirect, special, punitive, or consequential damages or any liability to any third party, even if Lane Public Library or OPLIN is advised of the possibility of such damages.
The Internet will be used for educational, information, and recreational purposes only, not for unauthorized, illegal, or unethical purposes. Users may not send, receive, or display text or graphics that may reasonably be construed as obscene. Users seen accessing such sites will be asked to stop. Failure to do so could result in a loss of Internet and/or library privileges. Lane Public Library uses filtering software on some computers to limit access to pornographic and sexually explicit web sites.
Library computers are shared resources, and are not for excessive use by any single user nor to support personal, recreational, for-profit, commercial, or other activities.
Users may be asked by staff to limit their usage of any library computer to 30 minutes.
Users should limit printing to the number of pages posted near the printers.
Because of the risk of computer viruses, users may not use their own software programs on any library computer connected to the Internet. Lane Public Library is not responsible for any loss of data, damage to a patron's computer, or liability that may occur from patron use of the library's computers.
Users should respect the privacy of others by not misrepresenting themselves as another user; by not attempting to modify or gain access to files, passwords, or data belonging to others; and by not seeking unauthorized access to any computer system, or damaging or altering software components of any network or database.
Access to Internet and OPLIN is normally available during library hours, subject to periodic maintenance. Users may not always be able to access Internet sites for various reasons that could include: restricted use of certain databases, too many users on the host computer, maintenance or addressing problems on the host computer, or temporary disruption of the library's Internet or OPLIN connection due to technical difficulties or routine maintenance.
comply with this policy may result in the loss of Internet and /or library
