Community Display Case Policy Print

JEFFERSON COUNTY LIBRARY
PUBLIC SERVICES POLICY NUMBER PUB06-3
ADOPTED: August 22, 2006
COMMUNITY DISPLAY CASE POLICY

In order to better serve the interests and needs of the public, the Jefferson County Library will make community display case(s) available to local organizations and individuals engaged in community not-for-profit activities. An application/release form for the use of the display case(s) must be signed and submitted by the exhibitor prior to any exhibit being accepted for installation in the case(s).

The community display case(s) for public use will be clearly designated, and will have a disclaimer posted: The Jefferson County Library does not endorse, approve, or promote the contents or subject matter of any displays, nor does it endorse the viewpoints of the exhibitors.

The library will develop criteria regarding the size of the materials permitted for display and the length of time of the exhibit so that the exhibit space will be made available in an equitable manner.

Beyond maintaining locks on the display case, the library shall not be responsible for the security of the materials in the display case.

Anyone who strongly objects to any part or entirety of an exhibit should submit that objection in writing to the library director, and may appeal in writing the director’s decision to the Jefferson County Library Board of Trustees.
