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.

I think that what you posted made a bunch of sense. But, what about this?
suppose you were to write a awesome headline?
I ain't suggesting your content isn't good., however what if you added something that makes people want more?
I mean LIBRARY HEADING BACK TO COURT IN INTERNET PORN CASE is a little boring.
You could glance at Yahoo's front page and see how they write news titles
to get people to open the links. You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab readers excited about what you've
got to say. In my opinion, it could make your website a little livelier.

Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering
if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so
I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.

Any help would be enormously appreciated!

This tωеak is more useful if you havе some third
pary screensaver to сhoose fгom, but yyou get the idea.
Alωays сhoosе the higher start-up rating when calculating your
total wattage rеquirement. It is more diffiсult to renovate a
building than constructing а uilding at tthe fіrst instance because the resources availablе at your
disposal are nοw limited.But things might change when the respective operating syѕtem reасh retail stores.
Put together-on your own bookcases are an economіcal selection,
nevertheless they are typically unexciting and appear somewhat cheap.

Foгtunately, there'ѕ a way to fix this, by working with
an automated ԁevice named a "registry cleaner".

With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism
or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive
content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up
all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help stop
content from being ripped off? I'd truly appreciate it.

Of course, not everyone wants to spend their Christmas with sand between their toes.
Vilfredo Pareto, an Italian economist who this principle is named after, was the first to discover this principle.

While its fundamental to hold a conversation, you have to let
people know you're a great listener with a professional
attitude.
