County weighs library ban on sex offenders

Anonymous Patron writes The Oregonian reports on Clark County (Washington?) commissioners and library leaders who are mulling whether registered sex offenders pose a threat to young library users — and whether libraries should be off-limits to them.

During last week’s meeting of the county board and leaders of the Fort Vancouver Regional Library, Commissioner Marc Boldt introduced the topic by saying he wanted to “chitchat” about Internet filters on library computers. But when the library delegation indicated that the controversy had been resolved, Boldt said he would like to go further.

“What do you do about registered sexual offenders?” he asked.”
