Library Filters

NPR's Larry Abramson reports on the Children's Internet Protection Act, the federal law that requires public libraries and schools to filter access to the Internet. He visits two public libraries with differing approaches. Civil liberties and library groups will challenge the law this week on the grounds that it is a form of censorship and violates the Constitutional right to free speech.
