Public Bulletin Boards Use Policy

 

The purpose of the public bulletin boards at the Racine Public Library is to make available information regarding cultural, recreational, educational, and human services programs and events in the community which are available/open to the public at large. The library does not evaluate the beliefs or purposes of the sponsoring organizations, and posting information does not imply endorsement by the library of any group, their ideas, or programs. Due to space constraints, postings are limited to programs or events in Racine County and at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, or sponsored by the Lakeshores Library System, its member libraries, or by other libraries.

Items for posting which are of interest primarily to adults should be delivered to the Reference Desk in the Adult Department. Items for posting which are of interest primarily to children should be delivered to the Reference Desk in the Youth Services Department. The Adult Reference staff maintains the public bulletin board for the Adult Department, while the Youth Services Reference Staff maintains the public bulletin board for the Youth Services Department.

Staff will mark the date of posting on materials which are posted. Postings may be retained until the day after the program/event, unless items to be posted exceed the available space. In that case, the staff will remove the oldest items first, as necessary.

This policy on the use of the public bulletin boards supersedes all of the Racine Public Library’s previous policies on public bulletin boards.

Approved by the Library Board September 15, 1994; Revised July 15, 1999; revised October 18, 2012.
