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.

Hi! I know this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.

Does managing a well-established website such as yours require
a large amount of work? I'm brand new to operating a blog but
I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I'd like to
start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and views
online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or
tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it! commented on 25-Nov-2013 08:15 PM

I think everything typed made a bunch of sense. However, what about this?

what if you were to create a awesome title?
I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a headline that grabbed people's attention?
is a little boring. You should peek at Yahoo's home page
and see how they create news titles to grab people to
open the links. You might try adding a video or a pic
or two to get people interested about what you've got to say.
Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier. commented on 25-Nov-2013 11:45 PM
