Web Sites for Children and Parents

The Fayette County Public Libraries assumes responsibility only for the information provided on its home pages. The World Wide Web and its available resources contain a wide variety of information and opinions. These resources change rapidly and unpredictably.  Users should be aware that they are responsible for the sites they reach. Parents of minor children must assume responsibility for their children's use of the Web through the library's connection.
