The Clearwater Public Library System sponsors online social networking, including but not limited to photo- and video-sharing, blogs, websites, and other social media sites to further its mission to provide outstanding customer service as a source of quality information, continuous learning, and innovative services that anticipate and support the needs of our community. These sites are also spaces for the public to share information and opinions about library-related subjects and issues.
The goals of Clearwater Public Library System-sponsored online social networking are:
The City of Clearwater recognizes and appreciates the rights of all members of our online community to free speech and freedom of expression. All departmental social media sites and all comments posted, however, are regularly monitored by administrators who reserve the right to report to the host site obscenities and hate speech. Furthermore, users are subject to the host site's Terms of Service, and any user in violation of the Terms of Service will be reported.
