This is hardly the way a library should be used. The following is a translated article from Diario where teens and pre-teens were using library computers to download porn. Some problems that we see in Aruba are starting at a rather young age. Guess this is Pimps in training or PIMPS 101. According to sources, the Director of the School at St Nicholas we very disappointed. The English translation to follow:
STUDENT MADE USE OF THE INTERNET AT THE LIBRARY TO OPEN A PORNO WEBSITE
ORANJESTAD (AAN) DIARIO received the invitation of a school director in St. Nicholas, who told the paper about certain negative development that took place last week, in which some students at his school between the ages of 11 and 13 are involved. He wants to alert parents so that they can be more attentive as to what their kids do, when they tell them that they are going to the library to go on the Internet for a school project.
An immediate clarification must be made that not all students who tell their parents that they are going to the National Library to make use of the Internet for school projects, are lying, because that is not the case, and many behave themselves appropriately and visit the center of information to search for data they really need.
