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'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your website.

It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me
to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer
to create your theme? Superb work!

Hi! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured I'd ask.

Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a
blog post or vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you happen to be interested feel free
to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!
Awesome blog by the way!

Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Taking the time and
actual effort to generate a really good article… but what can
I say… I put things off a lot and don't manage to get anything
done.

Hey there, I think your blog might be having browser
compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Firefox, it looks fine
but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has
some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
Other then that, very good blog!

Did you create this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for
you? Plz reply as I'm looking to create my own blog and would like to
find out where u got this from. kudos

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied
on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking
about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your
blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
