Distribution and Posting of Printed Materials Policy


The Clearwater Public Library System maintains designated spaces for posting and distribution of informational literature at each of its facilities in support of its mission to meet the informational, educational, recreational, and cultural reading and viewing needs and expectations of all citizens and population groups in the community.


Display and distribution is reserved exclusively for items sponsored by the Clearwater Public Library System and its partners as well as local, state and federal government, and official educational agencies, when space allows.

After library material has been displayed or provided for distribution, informational literature from the aforementioned agencies will be made available for display and distribution to the public based on the library’s determination of interest in, timeliness of and demand for the material.

The preferred size for all postings is 8.5 x 11 inches or smaller. Posters may not be allowed due to lack of space. The posting and removal of items will be done by library staff only. The library will not be responsible for returning any materials.

Items posted that do not meet these conditions and/or without the library’s permission will be removed and discarded by staff without notice.
