VPL's wireless Internet service has no filtering in place. We encourage parents to supervise their children's Internet sessions. All users are expected to use VPL's wireless Internet access in a legal and responsible manner consistent with the educational and informational purposes for which it is provided. In no instance is the library's wireless access to be used for:
