COLUMBUS, Ohio — Congress is considering a bill that would ban children from accessing social networking Web sites at library computers without parental permission.
Supporters said the goal is to prevent sexual predators from contacting children, 10TV's Tracy Townsend reported.
Sarah Davenport told 10TV News that her family uses the library often and does not agree with the ban.
"I think the role of libraries is changing, and I'm not sure that's the role of Congress to interfere in that," Davenport said. "I think it's more of a parental decision."
Davenport's daughter, Lily, has a page on Facebook and said she agrees.
"Maybe it would be better if there was a ban on inappropriate sites," Lily Davenport said.
