Use a computer

The Hampton Public Library provides access to the Internet to connect the public to a world of ideas and information, and to provide equal access to that information for all individuals in the community.  Unsecured wireless Internet access is available 24 hours a day from the parking lot, courtyard, or inside the building when open.  This policy applies to all use of the Hampton Public Library's wired or wireless Internet service, whether privately-owned or library provided devices are operated.

The library retains information about the number of uses, but does not retain browser history of personal information entered in websites or applications. Customer computer use is not permanently retained.  The library will not reveal the information sources or services individual users consult except in the case of illegal activity or a court order. 

Children 18 or younger are only allowed to use the computers located in the children's department in order to comply with the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA).  This act required internet filters for all children under age.
