Exibited, Posted, and Distributed Materials
The mission of the Highland City Library is, in part, to provide residents with access to information that educates, inspires, and entertains. The library meets that mission by providing residents with information that pertains to the library and city government by posting and distributing materials pertaining to those functions. Additionally, the library may post or distribute materials from other government agencies, library and literacy related events, or other information consistent with the mission of the library.

Posted Materials
When requests are made to post materials that are not consistent with the mission of the library, staff will advise the requestors of other resources that are available.

Any posted materials must be approved by the library staff member or director. Materials should be of suitable size, or in the case of handouts, suitable quantity. Materials will be posted no more than 30 days before, or until the last day of the event. After 30 days, materials will be discarded. The library assumes no responsibility for the preservation or protection of materials posted. Materials posted will be discarded.

  3. Temporary displays of art will be scheduled with the library director.
  4. The artist is responsible for setting up and removing their art at the appropriate times.
  5. The artist is responsible for providing signage to alert the public of the name of the art and artist and may include contact information but not pricing. Maximum size of signage may not exceed 3x5 inches.

The Highland Arts Council may be called upon to assist in selecting and displaying art throughout the library.
