Be Safe Online!
Note to Caregivers and Parents:
The library cannot guarantee the effectiveness of these search engines; no filtering software is guaranteed to block all unwanted material. Filters may also block material that is desirable, and that is protected under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
In most cases, you will find the information you are seeking; if you do not, use another search engine that does not employ filtering software.
Make sure a parent, teacher or guardian knows when you're online. If you get an email or message with rude or unpleasant things, you MUST tell a responsible adult straight away and DON'T reply to it! Remember that it's not your fault that someone has sent you this.
