Use the Library After Hours

Library Use Policy
The Library is available for programs and meetings that offer, civic, cultural, informational and
recreational programs, and which are open to the public and are free of charge. No petitions, political
or commercial, nor any charitable solicitations, unless library related, shall be permitted. The Library
reserves the right to refer to the Board of Trustee’s decisions regarding meetings which may have
serious consequences for the Library. Individuals or groups denied access have the right to appeal to the
Library Trustees.
In accordance with the ALA Bill of Rights, which assures that the resources of the library are made
available on an equitable basis, regardless of the benefits or affiliations of the individuals requesting
their use, the program/meeting facilities of the library are available on a first come first serve basis,
provided that such programs/meetings do not conflict with regular library services and they conform to
the guidelines provided. (See Library Use Form).
Any group comprised primarily of youth requires accompaniment by an adult(s) 18 years or older.
If the library sponsors an event, the library is responsible for publicizing and overseeing the event. If the
event is initiated by a person or group other than the library, then this individual or group is responsible
for publicizing and overseeing the event.
Use of the library does not imply library endorsement of the event or its sponsor.
The sponsor of any event will fill out a Library Use Form, available below.
Revised and adopted by the board on 4/18/2017.

Please contact the library to discuss scheduling before filling out the form: call 802-387-4407 or email: emily@putneylibrary.org .
