Distribution of Material & Solicitation
The Estes Valley Public Library District (Library) provides space for display of a wide range of news and views of public interest on a first-come, first-served basis in designated locations. Such information may be in the form of free newspapers, brochures, fliers, notices, or posters. The quantity of literature to be displayed and the length of time it remains are at the discretion of the Library Director based on available space.
Materials for display may be submitted by organizations and individuals engaged in intellectual, charitable, civic, cultural, educational, and recreational activities. Such entities may submit items publicizing a specific event as well as items describing their purpose. Items that are not permitted for display include job postings, commercial advertising and material aimed at soliciting members, requesting donations, or selling merchandise.
The Library assumes no responsibility for the preservation or protection of these materials. Each item posted on the lobby bulletin board must be dated and signed by a Library staff member. The Library will remove and dispose of the item at the end of the specified time period. For more information, refer to the Library’s Posting Procedures.
The Library prohibits solicitation, advertising, promotion, vending, peddling, or product sampling activities on library property, as it may interfere with the use or enjoyment of the library by library patrons.
Please refer to the Free Speech Policy set for more information.
