"Where the Community Connects"

Community Bulletin Board Policy

The library's bulletin board space is open to organizations engaged in educational, cultural, intellectual, or charitable activities. 

The library does not advocate or endorse the viewpoints or contents of the material displayed.

The library does not censor or remove a flyer because some member of the community may disagree with its contents. Those who object to the content of a flyer may submit their complaints, which will be judged according to the policies established by the library. 

The suggested size of a poster is no larger than 8.5"x11". Larger posters can be put up with the understanding that they will be the first to be removed if the bulletin board space begins to get crowded. 

Notices may be removed after two weeks, when they are no longer timely, or when space is required for more current items. 

Members of the public are not permitted to post notices. Only authorized library personnel or volunteers may post notices on the library bulletin boards. Notices posted without authorization will be removed.
