From the ABC news site:
The library subscribes to a filtering service, according to its website. It can be turned off, however, at the request of any adult.Click here to read the entire ABC News article (detailing the charges and possible solutions to the problem).
The library's policy states, "The library does not control or edit what is made available or filtered out by this service."
Not surprisingly, the ACLU has jumped in on the side of the porn-surfers but some of the group's suggested solutions are ludicrous: providing privacy screens on each computer or placing them in a secluded area off the library beaten path. Perfect.
Someone needs to explain to me why tax dollars should be spent on providing free porn to the homeless and those who cannot afford to indulge themselves in the privacy of their own homes. The government is well know for its obscene waste of tax money- but this is ridiculous.
