Public Library Allows Adults To Surf Porn

Posted: Updated:

An Illinois woman is fighting a public library for allowing adults to surf porn.

Megan Fox visited the Orland Park Public Library last month with her two young children and was shocked when she went to the adult computer area--and discovered adults can view pornographic sites.

"Immediately when I sat down at the computer, I saw a man in front of me with pornographic images on his screen," Fox said.

She immediately complained.

‘We understand that adults should have unfettered access to the Internet in our adult area. However, only adults ages 18 and up are allowed in our adult area," Library Spokesperson Bridget Bittman Said.

The library says it allows adults to have unlimited access to the Internet as long as it's not illegal and says banning pornography could be a first amendment issue.

The library says adults are carded before they're granted access to the area.
