Internet Access for Children and Young Adults - Parental Consent

Milton Keynes Libraries is committed to providing free and safe access to IT facilities for those who live in, work in, study or visit Milton Keynes.

Although Milton Keynes Libraries makes every effort to prevent access to inappropriate material, it cannot have complete control over the information on the Internet. As with other sources, such as television and videos, some sites will be unsuitable for children and young people.

Children and young people under the age of 16 are allowed access to the computers provided that, on their behalf, a parent or legal guardian has signed a Milton Keynes Libraries Internet Consent Form in the presence of library staff.

By signing the Consent Form parents or guardians agree to accept responsibility for monitoring materials accessed on the Internet by their children.

In order to access the IT facilities, children and young people under the age of 16 must be registered library borrowers; their library cards will be endorsed to show that they have parental consent to use the Internet.
