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 to the Library Director for approval. Proposals must include a contact person's name, address, and contact information. Library displays are approved at the sole discretion of the Library Director or their designee.

Exhibit/display space is limited and exhibits/displays produced by library staff and/or 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. Groups providing exhibits/displays are required to set up and take down their displays in the time allotted.

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

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

Display/exhibit space may not be used solely 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 political exhibits and displays of an educational nature for informational purposes.
