Displays and Exhibits Policy

The Mecklenburg County Public Library welcomes the generosity of those willing to loan items to the library for public display. The library feels that displays of artwork, artifacts, and other items are an enhancement to our service and of significant value to the public at large.

However, the library is able to provide only limited insurance to cover loss or damage to items loaned to the library for display. Exhibitors desiring to ensure adequate coverage for their display items should obtain their own coverage.

If exhibited artwork is available for sale, the library will keep a price list and information on how potential purchasers may contact artists. Sale of artwork and posting of prices is prohibited in the library.

Due to space limitations, not all facilities are able to display artwork or other items. Space constraints may limit the types of items that may be displayed at certain facilities. Potential exhibitors should be aware that although the library does not censor artwork or displays, materials which are judged inappropriate or offensive will not be displayed.

Acceptance and scheduling of displays and exhibits will be made by the Branch Supervisor in consultation with the Library Director. In cases of adverse decisions, the Library Board will be the final arbiter regarding the acceptance and scheduling of displays and exhibits.
