New Bill Related to Libraries in Delaware

Take a look.

“This Act enables Delaware’s public libraries to respond to expanding demand for and use of wireless and mobile technologies while clarifying that the use of such devices is subject to the Delaware Children’s Internet Protection Act. The Act furthers the goal of protecting minors from viewing obscene materials on the Internet by requiring libraries to post notices advising patrons to follow acceptable use policies and place appropriate controls on personal mobile and computing devices. The Act also gives parents and guardians choices as to the level of their minor child’s access to the Internet on library computers. Finally, the Act enables public libraries to keep pace with evolving technologies by improving upon the current database system and allowing libraries to offer dedicated computers for use by minors with appropriate filters.”
