    One of the Vineland Public Library's best assets is its wonderful Children's Department. Located on the 2nd floor (accessible by an elevator for people with disabilities), the Children's Department has a large collection of children's books and many other resources, such as puppets, that may be borrowed. Children ages 12 and younger are welcome to use the five children's computers and children ages 6 and younger are welcome to use the four computers in the Parent/Toddler Area. The Children's Department offers many events and activities such as Baby, Preschool and Toddler Story Times, Book Discussions and Family Nights.

     

My Rules for Online Safety

  • I will not give out personal information such as my address, telephone number, parent's work address/ telephone number, or the name and location of my school or library without my parent's permission.

  • I will tell my parents right away if I come across any information that makes me feel uncomfortable.

  • I will never agree to get together with someone I "meet" online without first checking with my parents.

  • If my parents agree to the meeting, I will be sure that it is in a public place and bring my mother or father along.

  • I will never send a person my picture or anything else without first checking with my parents.

  • I will not respond to any messages that are mean or in any way make me feel uncomfortable.

  • It is not my fault if I get a message like that. If I do I will tell my parents right away so that they can contact the online service.

  • I will talk with my parents so that we can set up rules for going online. We will decide upon the time of day that I can be online, the length of time I can be online, and appropriate areas for me to visit.

  • I will not access other areas or break these rules without their permission.

  • For further information on child safety, please call the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678).
