LIBRARY HEADING BACK TO COURT IN INTERNET PORN CASE

NCRL Webmaster - Tuesday, October 11, 2011

The North Central Regional Library, headquartered in Wenatchee, is heading back to Federal Court on October 25, 2011 for oral argument on summary judgment motions in light of the ruling in favor of the library by the Washington State Supreme Court.

The 5 county rural library district is defending itself in a case brought against it by the Seattle based ACLU.   The library’s 28 branches use an internet filter to meet federal requirements and make collection decisions about internet content.   The library filters the internet narrowly including pornography and gambling categories. The library uses the filter as a first line of defense in controlling illegal internet activity.   The ACLU wants the library to remove the filter.

According to Dean Marney, Director, “If we take the filter off there is nothing between us and someone who wants to use a library computer to access child pornography or other illegal and inappropriate material.   We are a publicly funded institution.   Our mission is to promote reading and lifelong learning.  It is crazy to think that we should be required to use tax dollars to allow open access to internet pornography or to become illegal casinos.  Removing the filter is unfair to the people who support our community libraries, jeopardizes the safety of kids, and creates a hostile environment for our patrons and employees.”

The North Central Regional Library district is the largest library district in the state serving Chelan, Douglas, Ferry, Grant, and Okanogan counties.

of the pictures aren't loading correctly. I'm
not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in
two different internet browsers and both show the same
outcome.

Like any other major purchase, one needs to carefully consider the Electrical requirements required
and of course one needs hot tub cover 7x7 to consider performance, maintenance, durability and hygiene.
Some other kinds of health problems like blood pressure,
heart disease and depression. Bamboo, for example, so as to hot tub cover 7x7 ensure the best use of
your hot tub gazebo requires some serious considerations such as pumping, heating, tub filter,
and piping installations. Also, the new molecules that this process creates mess with your pH.
