Access to pornography at libraries raises concerns

Lori Bradley was at the Roxbury Library with her son when he pointed out someone viewing pornography on one of the public computers. Bradley says

ROXBURY - Lori Bradley was at the Roxbury Library with her son when he pointed out someone viewing pornography on one of the public computers.

Bradley says she was shocked that someone could do that especially in such close proximity to children and have access to it through taxpayer dollars.

Officials at the library say they have a policy to ask people to stop if they are becoming disruptive, but cannot censor what people watch because it would be a violation of First Amendment rights.

Bradley hopes that this and other incidents will force the library to move computers away from the busier parts of the library to keep the inappropriate images away from children's eyes.
