The Library posts informational flyers and posters as space permits. Items posted are limited to those which promote civic, cultural, and educational activities and information of interest to the community. Items promoting private, political, religious, or commercial activities are not eligible for posting.
All items to be posted must be approved beforehand by the library. Confirmation of availability of space and approval for posting will be made by the library as soon as practicable.
EXAMPLES OF ACCEPTABLE ITEMS:
Items containing vocational, occupational, or college guidance information (civil service job announcements are kept in a folder in the Reference Room); cultural calendars from public arts councils; government agency informational flyers; notices of public hearings; notices of free tax assistance for senior citizens; and publicity announcing, recreational, cultural and educational activities of the Munson Williams Proctor Institute, YMCA, YWCA, Oneida County Historical Society, Central New York Community Arts Council, Children’s Museum, Utica Zoo, etc.
EXAMPLES OF INELIGIBLE ITEMS:
Garage/lawn sales promotionals, personal notices of any sort, court proceedings, bankruptcy notices, business promotionals and commercially related items, church fund raisers, sloppy or unattractive posters, fund-raising events sponsored by private groups and clubs, and announcements of political or religious groups or groups promoting religious or political activity.
Poster display by charitable enterprises may be permitted, if the announced activity is not deemed by the Library to be of political or religious purpose.
Notices of upcoming events are usually not posted more that a week in advance due to our lack of space and need for constant rotation of items posted.
