Bulletin Board Postings Policy
Bulletin Board postings and Free-Distribution Materials Policy
As part of its mission to inform and educate the residents of Canton, the Canton Public Library provides space for bulletin board postings and free-distribution materials. These items will be limited to those of a civic, cultural, educational, and/or recreational nature generated by non-profit groups and organizations. The presence of these items in the library does not indicate the library’s endorsement of the issuers or the information.
The library does not post or distribute personal or for-profit materials. The library reserves the right to reject items that it considers inappropriate.
Bulletin board postings and free-distribution materials will be placed in the library at the discretion of the Library Director based on available space, timing of the event or issue, and length of time the library has displayed them.
