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.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a
sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed
the shell to her ear and screamed. There was
a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

With havin so much content and articles do you ever
run into any issues of plagorism or copyright
infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content I've
either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it
is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization.
Do you know any techniques to help reduce content from being stolen?

I'd truly appreciate it.

Hi there, I think your blog may be having web browser compatibility problems.

When I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues.

I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
Apart from that, excellent website!

I do not know whether it's just me or if everyone else
experiencing problems with your website. It appears as if some of the written text in your
posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback
and let me know if this is happening to them too? This might be a issue with my browser because I've had this happen before.
Cheers

After I initially commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment
is added I receive four emails with the exact same comment.
There has to be a way you are able to remove me from that
service? Thank you!

I will immediately snatch your rss feed as I can't to find
your e-mail subscription hyperlink or e-newsletter service.

Do you have any? Please allow me know in order that
I could subscribe. Thanks.
