    Should public libraries ban pornography viewing on their internet access computers?

    Many will say that viewing pornography that is "legal" cannot be prevented by public libraries because it is protected under the First Amendment of the Constitution.

    Definitely, YES!!!!!!!! A public library allows, or encourages, the young to come for knowledge and pick up values. Pornography is a moral aberration to which the young should not be exposed. If pornography viewing in the internet were allowed, the young are virtually given an access to pornography that is not its intended use.

    They should sometimes this can be the start of some young people untimely career or even the opening up of a door to be abusive to younger children.

    People cry first amendment way too much.  Truth be told, the person that is okay with sitting in a public library filled precious resources and marvelous literary works while surrounded by children and their families to look at nudity has proven to have misused the many rights they were given.

    So much potential and they chose porn?  That equals a moron in my book.

    100% yes! pedophiles and known criminals ( of sexual nature) are not allowed to have access to computers because this is how they access their " triggers"....anyone of them can go into a library and do this...so remove the ability since we cannot control the action..nor can we expect libraries to police who is accessing the internet!

    Absolutely, porn should be banned from libraries. If the library patrons who love porn would work more and look at porn less, they would have money enough for their own computers. Why should taxes pay for porn? It is true that porn is "legal" but only for adults. Libraries cannot spend money to police their patrons. Library cards would have to be re-issued for minors and adults just to satisfy these people's lust, and even then some minors would be likely to borrow or steal adults' library cards. Computers are arranged close together in libraries I frequent. Who wants to go to the library and have someone sitting nearby heavy-breathing over some online porn site? Gee whiz!

    I thought all porn was banned. Plus a library is the last place anyone should be watching porn. Even with this new information, yes, I believe it should. I love libraries and would hate to see porn on someone's computer while walking to search for a book for entertainment.
