More on CIPA....I used to think that libraries that relinquished federal funds in order to escape the CIPA filtering requirements were engaged in heroic self-sacrifice. However, the AP reported yesterday that for some libraries, the costs of installing filters exceeds the funding they receive from the federal government. For these lucky libraries, freedom and funding lie on the same path. Check to see whether your library is equally lucky. (Thanks to LIS News.)
