The Woodbridge Public Library welcomes exhibits and displays in the branches that further the vision and mission of the Library. Exhibits should reflect the library’s role as an educational, cultural, and community institution. The Library recognizes its role in supporting Township talent and culture, and therefore extends its preference in scheduling exhibits and displays of Township schools, artists, community groups, and collectors.
Library use of display areas takes precedence over any other use and the Library reserves the right, without notice, to cancel the use of the display area by exhibits if the Director determines that the display space is needed for Library purposes.
The Library reserves the right to deny an organization’s or an individual’s request to exhibit either in part or as a whole. The Library facilities are public spaces which are used and viewed by community members of all ages, therefore exhibits need to be appropriate for general audiences.
No goods or services may be sold as part of an exhibit but artist contact information may be listed.
The presentation of any display or exhibit does not imply any endorsement of the content by the Woodbridge Public Library, its Trustees, or staff.
Agencies which have appropriate facilities are encouraged to exhibit items of interest to the public. The Agency Head should be consulted before the exhibit is arranged. This will allow maximum utilization of exhibits by other branches, cooperative publicity, and increased communication of ideas.
The person supplying the exhibit must provide an itemized list including the monetary value of the items before an exhibit is transported to a library. This information, plus the dates of the exhibition, is given to the Secretary to the Director for the purpose of insurance coverage.
