GENERAL STATEMENT

The Tippecanoe County Public Library welcomes the use of its bulletin boards and handout racks by responsible organizations and groups engaged in educational, cultural, intellectual, and charitable activities.

WHO MAY USE THE BULLETIN BOARDS AND HANDOUT RACKS

The bulletin boards and handout racks are available for use by civic, community, cultural, educational, political, or religious organizations for non-commercial and non-profit purposes. The space will be available to groups in the community regardless of the beliefs and affiliations of their individual members.

Display of items on the bulletin boards and in the handout racks does not constitute library endorsement of the viewpoints expressed in the items.

The bulletin boards and handout racks are not available for personal or family use, or for purely social use.

Items may be refused based on: size, available space, and anticipated demand.

FEES AND CHARGES

There is no fee or charge for the display of items on the bulletin boards or in the handout racks.

USE OF THE BULLETIN BOARDS AND HANDOUT RACKS

The bulletin boards and handout racks may be used to display items of educational, cultural, intellectual or charitable interest to the community. All items placed on the bulletin boards or in the handout racks must be approved, before display, by the Head of the Circulation Department or the Head's designated representative using the criteria above. Items not so approved will be removed from the bulletin boards and handout racks and disposed of as deemed appropriate by the Head of the Circulation Department or the Head's designated representative. Due to limited space, all qualified items might not be displayed. If any items cannot be displayed because of space, the items received first will be displayed. However, items directly concerned with the library will always be displayed. No items will be excluded due to viewpoint.

Items will be removed from the bulletin boards and handout racks by the Head of the Circulation Department or the Head's designated representative as outlined below:

    Items that become dated will be removed from the bulletin boards and handout racks and will be disposed of as deemed appropriate. For example, posters announcing meetings will be removed after the meeting, and pamphlets announcing the availability of information will be removed after the time period of availability is over. Other items will be removed after two months, unless there is space available and the item is considered to be of general interest. Items directly concerned with the library will be displayed as long as appropriate.

Due to space limitations, no regularly published materials, such as newsletters or reports, will be distributed from the library, except publications originated by the library or the Friends of the Tippecanoe County Public Library.

SECURITY

The library does not assume any responsibility or liability for items submitted for display on the bulletin boards or in the handout racks.

DAMAGES

The organization/individual assumes responsibility for any damage incurred.
