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.

And we're going david cameron to make it and which countries aren't.
While promising he would never put the countryside at risk, he insisted that their passion was" drowning out some of the world's top producers. I asked if it was wise for Mr Cameron.

When someone writes an post he/she keeps the idea of a user in his/her mind that
how a user can be aware of it. So that's why this paragraph is amazing.
Thanks!

Howdy, There's no doubt that your website could be having web browser compatibility issues.
Whenever I take a look at your site in Safari, it
looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it's got some overlapping issues.
I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
Aside from that, fantastic website!|

Try to convince your dad to dress well. Some good choices would be Lacoste/Tommy
Hilfinger/Polo Ralph Lauren/Calvin Klein/Nautica
polo's and 2 or 3 Pierre Cardin jackets. An Armani suit would also be good.
Woods has also been the host of the AT National PGA Tour event since
it started in 2007. Tour spokesman Ty Votaw said that since Woods is
on indefinite leave from professional golf, he will not serve as host for the 2010 event.

However, his Tiger Woods Foundation will continue to be the beneficiary of the AT National, under a contract that runs through 2014, Votaw
