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.

Check the drainage on your roof then make sure they are in line with reality.

In countless situations, this can suggest reductions in the price cover 7 inch tablet of unoccupied insurance

My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using
WordPress on various websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
I have heard great things about blogengine.net.

Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking
into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup?
I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% sure. Any
recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks

it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing,

I've been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
Appreciate it

トリーバーチ 財布 新作 I do agree with all
the concepts you've introduced for your post. They're really convincing and will certainly work.
Still, the posts are too quick for novices. May just you
please prolong them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.

Link exchange is nothing else except it is only placing the other person's weblog link on your page at appropriate place
and other person will also do similar in support of you.

Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with?
I'm looking to start my own blog soon but I'm having a
tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and
I'm looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
