Did you know that your children can see the computer screens when adults watch pornography in King County libraries? Please sign this petition today and ask our library board to put a stop to this!
We ask that the King County Library Board take immediate action to stop adults from openly watching pornography in our taxpayer funded libraries.
To accomplish this, the King County Library Board needs to adopt a new internet public use policy. This policy should disallow the removal of the Internet filter when requested by an adult library patron wishing to access usually blocked material. The current policy is to remove the Internet filter at the request of such an adult patron.
We suggest that the King County Library Board use the Internet Public Use Policy of the North Central Regional Library in eastern Washington as a model. In the Washington Supreme Court Case of Bradburn v. North Central Regional Library of 2010, the court ruled that the North Central Regional Library can choose which collections to display and does not have to remove their Internet filter. The North Central Library Internet policy blocks websites which include the following categories:
Nudity and Risqué
Child Abuse (Child Pornography)
We would like to see the same content blocked in our libraries. Please help us send this message to our library board!
