Display & Distribution Policy
This policy was approved
in May, 2010 by the Duluth Public Library Board.
The Duluth Public Library is pleased
to offer general information for the public via bulletin boards,
literature racks and handout tables. Please be aware of the following
rules for using these areas.
- Priority is given to Library,
City of Duluth and other government-related information. In the
branch libraries where space is more limited, priority will also
be given to neighborhood and city events.
- If space is available, additional
material (e.g., handouts, flyers, posters, notices) of a civic,
cultural, educational, or recreational nature may be accepted
for display or distribution. Publicized activities must be open
to the public.
- See a staff member in the Community
Services Office for approval to have your material displayed
or distributed in the Library.
- Typically, notices about upcoming
events will not be accepted more than 2 months prior to the event.
- Community Services staff may
limit the number of copies of material for public distribution.
- The only fundraising information
that may be posted or distributed is material from the Friends
of the Duluth Public Library and the Duluth Library Foundation.
- The following items will not
be accepted: notices that are commercial in nature, missing pet
posters, personal notices of any kind, and campaign literature.
- No petitions, surveys, solicitations,
or similar activities will be approved.
- If there is a dispute about
displaying or distributing something, the Library Manager has
the final decision.
- Bulletin boards, literature
racks and tables will be cleared on a regular basis.
- Distribution or posting of material
by the Library does not indicate endorsement of the issues or
events promoted by those materials.
The Duluth Public Library's policies
are subject to change without notice.
