Should libraries allow Internet users to view porn?

splSEATTLE – An area woman is upset after she witnessed a Seattle Public Libraries patron viewing porn on a library computer, according to the Seattle P.I.

The P.I. reported a woman asked a man to stop looking at pornography a few weeks ago while she visited the Beacon Hill branch. However, the library told the woman the man was within his First Amendment right to do so.

According to the article, the library utilizes privacy screens on the computer monitors, but librarians won’t censor what people look at on their computers.

    Absolutely not, those computers are for the good of the public. Looking for jobs, research, projects, etc. is what they should be used for, not someone's bad habits and sexual arousal.

    Who wants to sit in a chair and touch the mouse and keyboard after someone was on a porn binge with that equipment? Ugggh! (eyes roll)

    I don't agree with it but if people are going to cause such a stink over gun rights well then I would have to agree that it should be allowed according to our rights…

      You seem to be getting rights and rules mixed up and you're mixing issues here. Libraries and guns are two different things and have to be looked at as separate. By your judgement JoJo let's just have marijuana smoking in the library too. Why not? Because MJ might be a right BUT it's also AGAINST the library rules to smoke it there. Rules can overpower rights in certain circumstances JoJo.

        I am just saying that in the article it says the library states that it is the mans first amendment right. That is why I brought this up…also when businesses started doing gun free zones it was a huge deal

    The majority would probably like to eliminate access to internet porno at the public library. It's an unnecessary form of entertainment. This issue isn't the same as the government censoring what you read and watch in your on home. Taxpayers provide the libraries and shouldn't have to subsidize some weirdo's movie hobby.
