The Library shall not discriminate in providing space on the basis of race, religion, age, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, or disability. Use of the facilities in no way constitutes an endorsement by the Library of any group’s activities or beliefs. All advertisements for events must clearly indicate the identity of the sponsoring organization, and in no way imply the event is sponsored by the library.
Failure to comply with the following rules may result in suspension of use of the room by the individual and/or sponsoring organization.
Requests for exceptions, or further interpretation for circumstances not clearly addressed herein, will be referred to the library director who has the authority to make allowances if warranted.
