Child Internet Safety Resources for Florida Libraries
Welcome to FLA's Child Internet Safety pages, provided to support libraries' efforts to inform families about how to keep their kids safe on the Internet.
It is important for libraries to inform children and parents about safe use of the Internet. Libraries should have access to materials presenting Internet safety in a positive empowering manner.
To assist libraries, FLA is providing:
- Ready-to-print posters, flyers, and bookmarks developed by the Tampa Bay Library Consortium (TBLC) that libraries can use to share child Internet safety tips with parents and kids. These materials can be locally branded with libraries names and logos.
- Links to NetSmartz Internet Safety Training vignettes for grades k-2, 3-6, and middle and high school for loading on library computers.
- Links to resources like Child Internet Safety Presentations for library staff and law enforcement officials to use in group presentations.
- Suggestions about the services a library Child Internet Safety program might include.
Netsmartz materials and resources are provided by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children but libraries can certainly use other products and approaches as well. Information about NetSmartz can be found at http://www.NetSmartz.org/.
