Library Exhibits

The Pomona Public library will consider requests by individuals and community groups engaged in educational, cultural, informational and artistic activities to make use of the library's exhibit cases and display areas. By accepting a display or exhibit, the library does not endorse or advocate the viewpoints of exhibits or exhibitors. Displays and exhibits will be accepted and scheduled for view by the Director of the Library, or by a designated staff member. The Library reserves the right to designate and limit the space, size, location, and duration of displays and exhibits. The Library will have the final decision on the content and arrangement of all exhibits, and reserves the right to reject any part of an exhibit or to change the manner of its display.

Conditions & Requirements for Exhibitors

Scheduling for all displays and exhibits must be made in advance with the Director of the Library or a designated staff member. Space and exhibit scheduling will be done on a first-come first-served basis.

Exhibits must not interfere with the general operation of regular library activities.

Exhibits must contribute to and not detract from the general appearance of the library.

Exhibitors are responsible for creating their displays, setting them up and removing them as scheduled. Assistance will not be provided by library staff. If the Library staff is forced to dismantle a display, the library is not responsible for any damage.

Labels for exhibit items are provided by the exhibitor. They must be neat and attractive, and may not be attached to a wall or exhibit case. Labels may not contain prices. Exhibitors may not post signs or posters for their exhibits in the library, unless approved by the Library Director or designated staff beforehand.
