Posting of Public Notices
Public bulletin boards are used for promoting Library and cultural events in the community. Government agencies and organizations that are non-profit, nonsectarian, interdenominational or non-partisan may post notices for programs or events that are not politically partisan or that do not have a religious message.
The following items will not be accepted for posting or distribution:
- Items devoted solely to the sale, advertising, solicitation or promotion of products or services offered by commercial businesses.
- Requests for contributions
- Newsletters, newspapers, magazines, or other periodical publications
- Electioneering materials
- Religious materials which have the primary effect to proselytize for a single point of view
All notices for posting on any interior or exterior surfaces of any library building and grounds require approval of the Library Director or designee.
Items may not be posted for more than thirty days. The Library is not responsible for the care or return of materials.
Posting of a notice or placement of materials for distribution does not imply endorsement by the Library.
