A California public library took steps to allow people to watch porn in peace.

In response to complaints about the San Francisco Public Library, which allows watching pornography publicly, with children around, the library has installed plastic screens that will prevent other people from seeing what is on the screen.

The library plans to put warnings on all computers to remind people to be sensitive to what others can see while browsing the internet.

The viewing of these materials in public has been the focus of a debate and legislation as broadband technology becomes more widespread, pitting people who wish to have unrestricted Internet access against those who feel that controls should be put on public displays to block mature material.

The authorities of San Francisco Public Library, leaned toward limiting exposure to displayed content instead of restricting watching pornography.
