Yakima Libraries to Block All Adult Material Websites

Yakima libraries will block all websites with adult material following pressure from the community beginning today. The change happened after parents and other groups brought their complaints to the library board Monday night. They worried about the protection of children who use the library.

Yakima’s library system has traditionally steered clear of any kind of censorship.

“I want people to have access to information, I don’t know how they will use it. I mean, that’s not up to me to judge, just to provide it,” said Yakima Library Director Kim Hixson. “However, I also want people to be safe in the library as much as they can be and I realize people have concerns about their children.”

This is the Yakima library’s first internet policy change ever and will take effect Wednesday.

More changes could be made while the library decides what to filter.
