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.

You can have the good build if you plan carefully, but
for the equips, you need some wow gold. The game still follows the same old rules but different strategies that the players must know
for themselves. This was the sequel to the 1990
hit Super Cars and was available for the Amiga and Atari
ST. As per trend observed in the online gaming industry, casual gamers enjoy simple decision making games and less technical 3 D graphics games.
Some games can be played alone while others are enjoyed in company.

Does your site have a contact page? I'm having problems locating it but, I'd like to shoot you an e-mail.
I've got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in
hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it grow
over time.

Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering
which blog platform are you using for this website? I'm getting tired of Wordpress because
I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives
for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the
direction of a good platform.

I think that everything typed made a ton of sense.
But, what about this? what if you added a little content?
I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, however what if you added something
to maybe grab people's attention? I mean LIBRARY HEADING BACK TO COURT
IN INTERNET PORN CASE is kinda vanilla. You should glance at Yahoo's home page and
note how they create post headlines to grab viewers to click.
You might add a video or a related pic or two to get people interested about everything've
got to say. In my opinion, it could make your posts a
little livelier.

appeared to be at thhe nеt the easiest factor to understand of.

as other people consider issues that they just do not realizе about.
You managed tto hit the naіl upon the highest
and аlso defined out the entire thіng wіth no nedeԁ side effect , other folks can take a signаl.
Will probably be bаck to get more. Thanks

I'm impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog
that's both educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
The problem is something which too few folks are
speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy
that I found this during my hunt for something regarding this.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my
blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was
hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
Please let me know if you run into anything.

I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your
new updates.
