INFORMATION for PARENTS:

The Internet contains many different kinds of resources and its links can carry your children to many places. Some of these places may not be suitable for teens. We have attempted to choose only age-appropriate links for our Teen page, but because websites change frequently, and because they may contain links to many other sites, or may present materials you do not wish your teen to be exposed to, we urge you to supervise your child's exploration of the Web and make sure that the journey is a healthy one. Our inclusion of websites in this directory is not an endorsement of any products or services these sites may be selling or advertising. For advice about how to keep your child safe online, we recommend:

If your children will be using the South Plainfield Public Library's computers to access the internet, please be sure to read our Computer Policy.
