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.

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this site.

It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very hard to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appearance.
I must say you've done a great job with this. In addition, the blog loads
super fast for me on Firefox. Excellent Blog! pr3sp4birlik

Hey there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and
let you know a few of the images 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.

I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never
found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made
good content as you did, the net will be a lot more
useful than ever before.|

Howdy fantastic blog! Does running a blog such as this take a large amount of work?
I have very little knowledge of coding but I was
hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyhow, if you have any
ideas or tips for new blog owners please share. I understand this is
off subject however I simply had to ask. Appreciate it!

Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no data backup.
Do you have any methods to stop hackers?
