Bulletin Board & Handout Policy
Flyers, notices and small posters may be posted on Library bulletin boards for civic, educational or cultural programs. Limited space allows only short-term posting on Library bulletin boards. Materials will be posted for a maximum of two weeks.
Explicitly excluded from display are commercial notices of any kind including but not limited to notices of merchandise for sale, rental announcements, and notices of sales at and other related events sponsored by for profit establishments.
Partisan political posters, fliers, and handouts are not permitted on library bulletin boards. In like manner, political signs are not allowed on Library property. At the discretion of the Library Director or a designee, materials providing general information on local, state or national issues may be put on Library Bulletin Boards. In addition, local ballots will be posted at the library before each election.
An item to be posted on Library Bulletin Boards must be submitted to a Library staff person at a Public Services Desk. Subject to approval, a library staff person will post the item on a Library bulletin board. Any item posted without following this procedure will be removed.
Library staff members will develop materials promoting the library and its services. These will be available at various locations throughout the library. As space permits, other handouts may be provided by civic organizations and agencies. All handouts must be made available to the public free of charge.
Handouts must be submitted to a Library staff person at a Public Services Desk. Subject to approval, a library staff person will place the handouts in an appropriate place within the library. The handouts will be removed by a library staff member after they become outdated or after one month; whichever comes first. Any handouts left at the library without following this procedure will be removed.
