Display and Exhibits Policy
As an educational and cultural institution and as part of its public service, the Union County Public Library welcomes exhibits and displays of interest, information, and enlightenment to the community.
The use, by individuals or organizations, of the library’s facilities for displays and/or exhibits, other than those, which pertain to the library, is not a right but a privilege, which is subject to review by the library board.
The library director may grant the privilege of placing exhibits and displays in the library subject to the following conditions:
1. Poster, displays, exhibits, or works of art to be exhibited will be subject to review by the Library Board of Trustees.
2. No outside organization or individual shall be permitted to display or exhibit any materials, leaflets, or posters which advocate the election or defeat of a candidate for public office, which advocate an affirmative or negative vote for or against any proposition, political or otherwise.
3. The library assumes no responsibility for the preservation, protection, or possible damage or theft of any item displayed or exhibited. All items placed in the library are done so at the owner’s risk.
Public Bulletin Board
Organizations and individuals shall be permitted to use the library bulletin board to display posters, brochures, or flyers for which the sole purpose is to advertise, or promote a service, product or item for commercial enterprise. Notices should not have any offensive wording or pictures.
All postings should be turned in to the downstairs circulation desk, where they will be dated then posted. Individuals should not post notices. All notices not dated will be displayed for 6 months. If a longer period is needed, they must be resubmitted.
