Kingston Public Library Announces
Policy Change in Internet Access
The Kingston Public Library Board has approved a change in its
policy on Internet Access. Effective October 15 patrons will no longer
be able to access MySpace, FaceBook, and related sites. The
decision to delete these sites from public access is due to parental
concerns that their children were being exposed to material unsuitable
for their age. The Library has a policy in effect prohibiting access to
any site that may contain pornography.
“We want our patrons to be able to access
information, “ said Director of Library Services Steve Jacks, “ but we
are also obligated to protect our patrons from sites that may not be
appropriate for everyone. Deleting MySpace and like sites was not an
easy decision, but it is the right decision for our library.”
The Library Board will review the change in policy
at its November meeting.
For more information about this change, contact the
Director at 865-376-99o5 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
