Public Information Distribution, Display, and Exhibits Policy - Athens-Clarke County Library

The Athens-Clarke County Library Board of Trustees establishes policy for use of bulletin boards, brochure racks, galleries, cases and all other display spaces in the Athens-Clarke County Library and all Athens-Clarke County branches. This policy covers all areas of library campuses, including outdoor property, parking lots and grounds.

Complaints about this policy or about the content of any postings, brochures, exhibits or displays at the library should be addressed in writing to the Director of the Athens Regional Library System (ARLS) for local review by the Athens-Clarke County Library Board as outlined on the library's Request for Reconsideration Form. If necessary, an appeal is heard by the ARLS Board of Trustees. Their decision will be final.

Handouts & Bulletin Board Postings in the Athens-Clarke County Library

In the spirit of community partnerships, the library provides a designated space on a public bulletin board for announcements and notices of local community events. The library also provides literature display racks for distribution of free handouts, notices, and other materials which may be of interest to the community. Both of these services are in keeping with the library's overall philosophy of providing access to a wide range of information sources.
