Library Porn Offends Family – Oak Harbor, WA

I was in the Oak Harbor Library about three weeks ago with my children. As I was walking out of the building, my oldest daughter (13) told me she saw a man looking at porn on the computer and my littlest one (9) also said she saw this. I went back in to tell someone about it and sure enough the librarian saw as well. He was sitting there in the front out in the open, screen facing the desk. I told her that I was not happy about it. I went back in just last week to talk to the manager, to see what came of that person. I was shocked to find out that there was nothing really done. I was told that there is nothing the library can do about folks doing that. That is the most appalling thing I have heard. My husband was already uncomfortable about me taking our kids to the library because of the riffraff there, and now this. I will not be coming back until you guys can filter out the crap, or get rid of the Internet. The computers that were put in there are no longer being used for the reason they were intended. If this individual has access to this, then how many of those under the age of 18 have access to it? And they surely are not being monitored.
