Child protection

If you are booking the event for your child, please be aware that Kildare Library Service requests that a parent/guardian remains present in the room for children under 12 years of age during the event.

Attendance

The name you use to book the event is the name that will be admitted to the event to guard against Zoom bombing. To assist with this, please check the Zoom name you enter is accurate.

Audio is essential, video is optional

Joining with video is optional but you will need a microphone to participate. Please stay on mute unless you are speaking.

Asking a question

If you want to ask a question, please raise your hand, or put it in the chat function. This will allow the facilitator to deal with questions in turn.

When speaking, always introduce yourself

When speaking please introduce yourself, it is hard to identify a person just by voice, and it may be confusing if it is not clear who is speaking.

Speak loudly and clearly

Ideally use a headset with a microphone if you can.

Kildare Library Service will not tolerate any instances of inappropriate behaviour that is considered as threatening, derogatory, disruptive or abusive by another person. Any instances of harassment or discrimination will not be tolerated. Any offenders will be ejected from the meeting and refused entry to any other online event organised by Kildare Library Service.
