Citizen complains about library "porn" | WAVY.com | Virginia Beach, Va.

Citizen complains about library "porn" | WAVY.com | Virginia Beach, Va. | Information Science | Scoop.it
A Virginia Beach woman is outraged by what she saw on a library computer screen. Librarians say viewing the material is protected by the First Amendment.
Afroditi Fragkou's insight:

On one hand, I agree that we shouldn't intervene and allow library patrons use library computers any way they want. However, there is obviously the dilemma, are other patrons obliged to be exposed to porn if they don't choose to? I believe the solution lies in space design. Computers should be placed in seperate stationary where people can use them at their own pace and privacy. But is this possible in library buildings designed ages ago with no such forethought?
