Library Board Policies - Community Displays

Halton Hills Public Library is committed to supporting the community in which it does business and as such makes space available for non-profit community groups to promote their community services, programs or upcoming events free of charge.   This policy includes community displays, community display boards and community brochure holders.

The granting of space does not imply endorsement of the group or event by the Halton Hills Public Library Board.

Organizations requesting space must:

·         be based in Halton Hills or be providing direct services to Halton Hills

·         be a non-profit or charitable organization

Non-profit community groups may request these cases to put up display boards and posters, and provide an assortment of flyers for visitors to pick up.  Displays may promote fundraising events; however, donation boxes are not accepted.  The display cases can be used for a maximum of one month, subject to availability.  The display cases may be booked one year in advance.
