Did SNL Really Just Joke About the Orland Park Library?

Watch Seth Meyers make fun of people who watch porn in libraries.

It appears Saturday Night Live may have poked fun at the ongoing debate about computer use policies at the Orland Park Public Library.

Seth Meyers during Weekend Update said "a library in Chicago is now allowing patrons to look at porn on their computers as long as they show ID first. Said people who look at porn in the library, 'no deal.'" (Go to 1:27 into the video for the segment)

Messages left with Saturday Night Live media relations staff were not immediately returned Sunday.

The SNL actor took liberties with the library's recently changed policy. The Orland Park Public Library is now asking for ID to be held for anyone using computers and library cards will be held for children without ID.

Nope, but I'm going to start...simply because the elected officials in this town think it's appropriate for me to be able to to do so. First Amendment baby...yeah!

Libraries have morphed from places of education to a place where entertainment surpasses the demand for educational material. Pulp fiction, movies, and now porn. I agree with Andrea, place viewers in a private room. Let them feel the shame when they enter and exit. I almost wonder why viewers cannot be charged with indecent exposure. If they were openly reading a porn magazine on a train would there be no consequences? I am sure a father with children would quickly address this.

I, too, am disgusted with the availability of porn at or library. I worked there and saw questionable behaviors by questionable people. When my children were young I would drop them off at the library to do homework. Now, I wouldn't even consider it.
