As the parent of three avid readers, I agree with Meghan Cox Gurdon's point that what is considered "banning" in the book trade is known in the parenting world as doing our job. In a piece in the Wall Street Journal this week, she writes:
....
Kids one block removed from my neighborhood in wealthy suburban Philadelphia go to bed hungry and, trust me, having been a hungry kid, I don't think they are begging to read about starvation. I have been the child at the receiving end of violence and I would give my life to protect my own from such violence, and that includes the violence of the words and images that, once they take up residence in our heads, cannot be erased. I can assure you that, growing up, I did not sit around wishing I could read about the hardships I was undergoing. ....

Ms. Gurdon should take a bow for having the guts to tell it like it is.

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA – The City Council on Wednesday is set to take up discussion of the recently enacted county ordinance banning registered sex offenders from county parks and beaches, opening the door for the city to draft a similar ordinance.
....
Nelson said he wants to ban registered sex offenders from county libraries, as well.

Baric said the issue is especially important in light of a recent incident involving a sex offender at the Rancho Santa Margarita Library.

Registered sex offender Robert Bruce Engel, 67, was arrested in May after three teenage girls saw him touching himself at the Rancho Santa Margarita Library. He is accused of sitting on a bench inside the library, laying a newspaper across his lap and touching himself under the newspaper, according to a news release from the District Attorney's office.

Engel, a Mission Viejo resident, has pleaded not guilty to one felony count of indecent exposure with prior convictions. According to court records, ....

This is where Liberals show themselves to be bereft of common sense. Letting kids have access to porn in a public library is a perversion, pardon the pun, of free speech.

I don’t want my tax dollars paying for a horny 12 yr old wanting to get his nut off when he should be researching the Grapes of Wrath or something.

Thankfully we have at least a couple of pols left in this city with common sense.

A Washington state mother has filed a complaint against her daughter's school district after she brought home a ‘graphic’ sexual education book that includes cartoons explaining masturbation.

Jennifer Swedeoson said she was caught off guard when her 10-year-old daughter, Kaleigh, brought the book home from school.

‘I start flipping through, this is all right, but then it starts talking more about sex, and I get into it and it's completely too graphic for her,’ she told local station Q13Fox.

The book, ‘What's the Big Secret’, which is allowed at the Oak Harbor School District, shows how boys and girls differ and talks about ‘different types of touching’.

It includes cartoon characters discussing the feeling you can get from ‘rubbing your genitals’ and shows a young boy telling a girl, ‘I’ll show you mine’.

‘This is one of the first things that definitely caught my eye, talking about masturbation when you are 10 years old. What do you need to read that for?’ said Mrs Swedeoson.

A Washington state mother has filed a complaint against her daughter's school district after she brought home a sexual education book.

Jennifer Swedeoson says she was caught off guard when her 10-year-old daughter, Kaleigh, brought the book home from school.

"I start flipping through -- this is all right -- but then it starts talking more about sex, and I get into it and it's completely too graphic for her," she told Q13Fox.com.

The book, "What's the Big Secret," which is allowed at the Oak Harbor School District, shows how boys and girls differ and talks about "different types of touching."

"This is one of the first that definitely caught my eye, talking about masturbation when you are 10 years old. What do you need to read that for? I'm not so upset about the book itself. I think they should be sending home permission slips, making sure parents are aware that the book is there," she told the website.

The school district says it has never had a problem with offering the ....

Librarians do love their porn, don’t they. Safe Libraries Guy sent me links about a juicy story where two men got into a fistfight over porn in the Brooklyn Public Library. One man was busy enjoying his Internet porn when another man waiting for the computer attacked him.

Safe Libraries Guy argues that the problem is the ALA urging libraries to disregard federal law. He does have a point there. Libraries that receive any federal money are supposed to put Internet filters on their computers, and adult library patrons can request that they be disabled for their sessions.

....

Some librarians claim that this might embarrass library patrons, but that’s a pretty silly claim. Any man who sits at a public library computer watching Internet porn and massaging his genitals is obviously beyond embarrassment. That’s a point so obvious no one should have to make it, but librarians buried brain deep in ALA ideology don’t always see things clearly.

When we heard about the recent instance of "blows" (the fist kind) between a guy watching porn on a Brooklyn Public Library computer and a guy who wanted to use the Brooklyn Public Library computer that the first guy was watching porn on, we were curious. What's the library's policy on porn, anyway? Is it cool -- or even just okay -- to watch porn in the public library? Do people -- more than just that one guy -- do it? We got in touch, and we learned a few things. Always learning!

According to the friendly library spokesperson we talked to, not only are adult customers able to view whatever they wish on public library computers, the library actually provides privacy screens (those dark covers for monitors that the user can see through but those beyond cannot) for customers who wish to view "questionable material." There's a separate area for children and teens, which is the youth wing (where questionable material is not allowed).

We asked, of course, for clarification.

Carl Monday is a television reporter for WOIO-TV in Cleveland, Ohio. ....

In May 2006, his report on the viewing of online pornography, among other lewd and lascivious behavior in Cleveland-area public libraries, managed to draw widespread attention on the Internet. Numerous sites posted a link to the video clip for its perceived comedic value. In the report, Monday confronted Berea resident Michael Cooper, who was caught on camera masturbating while viewing pornographic images in the library. Monday elicits denials from the resident and uses an unemotional deadpan speaking tone when describing the resident's acts, before revealing that he in fact taped the acts. Monday drew criticism on his blog from people who saw the report.

....

The library piece was satirized on September 28, 2006 by Comedy Central's The Daily Show in a segment where correspondent Jason Jones put on a trench coat and attempted an ambush interview with Carl Monday. The piece ended with Jones catching up ....

Three weeks ago, Angela Vo, music industry junior, was sitting in the library studying for midterms when her friends pointed out an older man watching pornography on a nearby computer.

"We all just turned around and he was blatantly watching porn," Vo said.

Vo decided to pull out her camera and make a video of the man watching porn and post it on YouTube. The video was taken down shortly afterwards after being flagged as inappropriate, but that was not the last she heard of him.

"The officers responded to a complaint from the library staff," Pinac said.

English writing freshman Kylee Mclntyre was at a nearby computer when the man was being escorted out of the library. Although Mclntyre had not seen the man before, two friends said they had seen the same man masturbating on the second floor of the library on another day.
