  1. What possible changes?

  2. How are we expected to comment on possible changes to a policy without being told what changes are being considered? “Implementation of technology protection” is about as vague as it could possibly be. I might be for the change being considered or extremely opposed to it. Please provide information so that we are allowed to have an informed opinion.

  3. Probably for protection of personal information. The criminals are getting smarter, even though they are relatively stupid people. I’m all for it. Hope you don’t slow down your connection.

  4. The “Implementation of technology protection” would consist of installing content blocking filters to censor online access in a misguided attempt to “protect” users from offensive material. The Federal government has programs in place that provide funding if libraries comply with these restrictions on freedom of information.

  5. End adult day care!!!

  6. I am against policy changes for the library. Children are already provided with internet access. It is up to the parent to monitor what sites their children access while at the library. Furthermore, many adults use the library to do job searches, complete applications etc… The unemployment rate in san antonio is already high enough without the library a place of public access without censorship to have restrictions placed on computer use.

  7. CIPA only blocks images, not content. It’s important to know this. A lot of misinformation is being spread about CIPA. http://www.fcc.gov/guides/childrens-internet-protection-act
