Lebanon library shuts off anonymous web-surfing network

The Associated Press

WEST LEBANON — A New Hampshire public library board of trustees is planning to discuss internet privacy after the library shut off an anonymous web-surfing network server.

The Concord Monitor reports the Kilton Public Library server was the first in the country to be operated by a public library under the Library Freedom Project — until the Tor server was shut off in August.

The server had operated for about a month until Lebanon police brought the issue to the city. The library had been handling traffic for Tor, which makes it harder for people to trace communication. It did not download the browser onto its public terminals.

The Board of Trustees unanimously supported the project in June. They are slated to discuss the issue at a meeting Tuesday night.
