Friends Lecture on Dark Web Scheduled Saturday

The Friends of the Canton Free Library are sponsoring free weekend lectures during the winter months. The first of the lectures, titled Shedding Light Into the Dark Web will be presented Saturday, February 11, 2023 from 4:00-5:00pm in the downstairs Paige room of the library.

The Internet is a product of humanity’s creativity and therefore has its own dark wild place; the Dark Web. But do we need to be afraid of it? This lecture will discuss the definitions of the Surface Web, Deep Web, and the Dark Web and how The Onion Router (TOR) allows the Dark Web to exist. By discussing the uses, both legitimate and illegal, we’ll shed some light into the Internet’s dark corners!

The lecture will be presented by Chuck Henry, Integrated Technologies Coordinator at the Northern New York Library Network.

Light refreshments will be served.
