Postings/Display Cases Policy

Bulletin Board and Distribution of Material

Space permitting, the library will post announcements of the cultural activities of the community -those concerned with literature, art, music, drama, and related activities; and public announcements of general interest to the community.

The following general guidelines apply:

Posters, notices, and material for distribution should be submitted to the Library Director. Nothing may be posted or removed from bulletin board except by authorized library staff members.

Items left for approval will be kept by the library for five days if not approved, during which time they may be picked up. Approved items will be posted. Items will remain posted at the discretion of the library and subject to limits of space.

Posters and notices with printed price charges may be accepted, but not those announcing events of a strictly commercial character, unless they will stimulate library use.

In the field of education, announcements of courses given by educational institutions or sponsored by recognized community groups (i.e., AAUW, Chamber of Commerce, etc.) may be accepted.

Announcements concerning group religious activities (joint Good Friday services, etc.) may be accepted.

Oconomowoc Public Library will place a disclaimer statement in each display case to assure the public of the Library Board’s neutrality regarding all displays.
