Information Display & Distribution Policy

The Duluth Public Library is pleased to offer general information for the public via bulletin boards, literature racks and handout tables. Please be aware of the following rules for using these areas.

  •  Priority is given to Library, City of Duluth and other government-related information. In the branch libraries where space is more limited, priority will also be given to neighborhood and city events.
  • If space is available, additional material (e.g., handouts, flyers, posters, notices) of a civic, cultural, educational, or recreational nature may be accepted for display or distribution. Publicized activities must be open to the public.
  • See a staff member in the Community Services Office for approval to have your material displayed or distributed in the Library.
    • Typically, notices about upcoming events will not be accepted more than 2 months prior to the event.
    • Community Services staff may limit the number of copies of material for public distribution.
    • The only fundraising information that may be posted or distributed is material from the Friends of the Duluth Public Library and the Duluth Library Foundation.
    • The following items will not be accepted: notices that are commercial in nature, missing pet posters, personal notices of any kind, and campaign literature.
    • No petitions, surveys, solicitations, or similar activities will be approved.
    • If there is a dispute about displaying or distributing something, the Library Manager has the final decision.
  • Bulletin boards, literature racks and tables will be cleared on a regular basis.
  • Distribution or posting of material by the Library does not indicate endorsement of the issues or events promoted by those materials.
