Display Policy

Display Policy PDF

In its capacity as a community center, the Library welcomes proposals for exhibits and displays from local groups that are cultural, educational, and/or community oriented.

Proposals must be submitted in writing to the Library Director for approval. Proposal must be legible and include a contact person's name, address, and telephone number. Library displays are approved at the sole discretion of the Library Director.

Exhibit/display space is limited and exhibits/displays produced by Library staff and promoting Library services are given top priority.

Exhibits/displays may be left up for a period of time determined by the Library Director or a designee. No exhibit/display may be left up for more than one month. Groups are required to set up and take down their displays in the time allotted. The library cannot store packing or display materials for outside groups.

Groups use Library exhibit/display space at their own risk. The Library is not responsible for any items left on display at the library.

The topic of an exhibit/display does not necessarily reflect the views of the Library or library officials.

Art and photography displays will be limited to those sponsored or cosponsored by the Library.

Display/exhibit space may not be used to promote the sale of goods or services and is not available to for-profit organizations. Political candidates, political parties, and special political interest groups are prohibited from using library exhibit/display space to promote their interests. The Library may produce nonpartisan exhibits and displays of an educational nature for informational purposes.
