Checking out naughty websites at the Mitchell Park Library

Original post made by Yecchh, Adobe-Meadow, on Jul 2, 2014

I was at the library last night with my family, and as I walked by one of the Internet-connected PCs, I noticed a 50- or 60-something guy looking at his monitor, covering it up partially with sheets of paper. This seemed a little strange to me, so I looked over again from farther away and saw that he was looking at X-rated photos. He seemed to be doing this for awhile. I'm not sure what he hoped to accomplish doing this in such a public place with lots of little kids around. Fortunately, he didn't appear to be, uh, doing anything to himself while he viewed these things.

Maybe he doesn't have a computer at home, duh. Or maybe he prefers to do this in public, double duh. Perhaps, if you're concerned, you should mention it to a library employee? It may be against the terms of use.

And they're not just places for families and kids. They're also places for singles, the widowed and divorced, the happily childless, the barren and the homeless.

[Portion removed.] Library employees should have been told. He probably doesn't want the porn history on his own computer in case it's ever confiscated.
