Exhibit Policies, Requests and Spaces

This policy addresses routine library exhibits of regular size with typical display items such as wall art, books, and other small art objects.

Guidelines for Library Exhibits

  • All exhibits should relate to library services and/or collections in some manner.
  • Exhibits must fit within the physical limitations of the designated display cases and be installed using library-approved methods.
  • Installation of exhibits is the responsibility of the exhibitor and must adhere to the library’s exhibit guidelines.
  • Proposed exhibits will be reviewed by the head librarian.

Submitting Exhibits to the Library

  • The potential exhibitor must submit a Request Form to the head librarian.
  • The completed form will include: title/theme, a brief description of the exhibit, including suggested materials to be displayed, (and dimensions, if possible) exhibitor name and contact information, preferred exhibit dates, and connection to the library and its services.

Liability Statement

The library will do its best to maintain proper security for loaned materials during the exhibit. There must be a clear understanding with the exhibit curator that the library cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage to the materials. The “Request to Display” form includes a waiver to this effect, which must be signed by the person lending materials to the library.
