Yes, the Library uses a web filtering software on all public computers. The Santa Fe Springs City Library values free and equal access to information, even when that information may be controversial, unorthodox or unacceptable to others. With its implementation of filtering software, the Santa Fe Springs City Library balances its commitment to customers’ diverse interests and individual rights with the need to provide a welcoming and comfortable environment for all ages.
The Santa Fe Springs City Library follows state and federal law regarding privacy of library users’ records and information.
It is the Santa Fe Springs City Library's usual practice to erase all customer use records, except those essential for library business operations. When a computer session is ended, all information about that session is ordinarily deleted. The Library does not, as part of its regular practice, retrieve any information, including websites visited, passwords, credit card numbers, or any other information a customer has entered. At the end of the business day, all computer use and reservation records are normally erased. However, in any event, the Library will release records, including those relating to Internet usage, as required or authorized by law.
