Policy and Guidelines

Library programs are not an opportunity to promote a business or service. The purpose of Library programs should be educational, not promotional. Presenters shall not actively promote their businesses during library programs. Brochures, flyers and business cards may be made available to attendees at an informational table but should not be included in presenter handouts.

Authors and performers may sell their books, CDs and DVDs at Library programs. The Library will not provide staff support for selling of materials.

The complete policy can be viewed in the library programs policy.
