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.

Hey there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors
or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and
now each time a comment is added I get three
emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can
remove people from that service? Bless you!

Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super
long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing.
Do you have any tips for first-time blog writers?
I'd definitely appreciate it.

Hey! I know this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.
Does running a well-established website like yours require a large amount of work?
I'm completely new to running a blog but I do write in my diary everyday.
I'd like to start a blog so I can share my experience and feelings
online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for
new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long
as I provide credit and sources back to your site? My blog is in the exact
same area of interest as yours and my visitors would certainly benefit from a lot of the information you provide here.
Please let me know if this ok with you. Many thanks!

Whats up are using Wordpress for your blog platform? I'm
new to the blog world but I'm trying to get started and create my own.
Do you require any html coding knowledge to make
your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!
GTA V steam cles commented on 05-Jan-2014 02:03 PM
Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
I think that you could do with some pics to drive
the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is great blog.
A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.
