NCRL News and Events


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.

Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.

Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be
on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they just
don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top
as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal.
Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

Its like you learn my mind! You appear to understand so much about this,
such as you wrote the guide in it or something. I think that you just can do with some p.c.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog
and was curious what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a
blog luke yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy
so I'm not 100% positive. Any tips or advice would be greatly
appreciated. Thank you

Hey! This post couldn't be written any better!
Reading through this post reminds me of my old room mate!
He always kept talking about this. I will forward this write-up to him.

Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing! commented on 20-Dec-2013 02:46 PM
I do accept as true with all of the ideas you've introduced in your post.
They are very convincing and can certainly work.
Nonetheless, the posts are very quick for newbies. May you please extend them a bit from subsequent time?
Thank you for the post.

information. commented on 20-Dec-2013 03:25 PM
I don't leave a leave a response, but I browsed a lot
I do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind. Could it be only me or does it appear like
a few of these comments look like they are coming from brain
dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on other sites, I'd like to follow everything
new you have to post. Would you list of every one of your social networking pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
