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.

Hello, There's no doubt that your site may be having browser compatibility problems.
Whenever I look at your blog in Safari, it looks
fine but when opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues.

I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Aside from that, excellent site!

I rarely drop comments, but after looking at through a few of the responses
on LIBRARY HEADING BACK TO COURT IN INTERNET PORN CASE. I do have some questions for you if it's okay.
Could it be just me or do a few of the responses look like they are coming from
brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing
on additional places, I'd like to keep up with anything fresh
you have to post. Could you make a list of all of your shared sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
