Browse free or die? New Hampshire library is at privacy fore

NH1

LEBANON, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire library has found itself on the front lines of the debate over internet privacy after it installed a program that masks the location and identity of its users.

The software known as Tor was installed last summer at the Kilton Library in Lebanon. It quickly became a rallying cry for those who oppose government surveillance and see the libraries among the loudest voices fighting for freedom of expression. But not everyone welcomed Tor.

Lebanon police, channeling Department of Homeland Security concerns, asked the Kilton Library to stop using Tor, and the library briefly complied. But after the library's board of trustees voted unanimously at a packed hearing to maintain the Tor relay, it was turned back on.
