Reyes discusses the issue of porn in public libraries on KPCC's Air Talk

Libraries are sanctuaries for learning. They should not be places where children are vulnerable to viewing offensive images that can affect them for years to come. I called for action after a man was seen viewing pornography on a Chinatown public library computer in plain sight of children. Library staff responded promptly. I joined City Librarian Martin Gomez today to discuss this on "Air Talk with Larry Mantle."

The passage of Measure L last month is proof positive that we still place a great value on our libraries as bastions of learning and information. So can such a trusted resource be allowed to put any kind of limits on the information it disseminates? What if that information is pornographic?
