An Oregon librarian who conducted a nationwide survey found more than 2,000 complaints about pornography in public libraries.These are \"just the tip of the iceberg,\" said David Burt. His report, released yesterday, found 472 reports of children improperly accessing pornography on public library computers.
The American Library Association (ALA) \"refuses to admit that any problem even exists,\" said Mr. Burt, who works in Lake Oswego, Ore., and runs Filtering Facts, a group that promotes the use of software filters on public library computers.
