Morris Co. man wants to make library computers safe for kids

After a woman complained about pornography being accessible through the computers at the Roxbury Public Library, a Morris County man has made it his mission

ROXBURY - After a woman complained about pornography being accessible through the computers at the Roxbury Public Library, a Morris County man has made it his mission to make libraries safe for children.

Dan Kleinmann, the founder of the website safelibraries.org, says his goal is to protect children from pornography on library computers in New Jersey.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2003 that a library using filtering software does not violate a patron's First Amendment rights.

Library officials say that they are reviewing their policies regarding patrons' use of the Internet.
