These are policies covering meeting rooms, displays, and sevices.


In its role as a forum for information, free thought, and communication in the community, the Keck Memorial Library will, at its discretion, exhibit displays and posters or announcements  which have been submitted by community groups on the bulletin boards.  Only materials of community, national or world interest will be considered.  All materials should fit in with the Library's collection or its broader goals as a source of information, education and recreation. No materials with a profit motive can be accepted nor those of a political or religious organization representing a single point of view.  Furthermore, the Library retains at all times the right to accept or reject for any reason any or all materials submitted for display.

The video players may be used by patrons of the Keck Memorial Library in the Zella Wright McNeal Reading Room.  People viewing the video must keep the volume to a minimum so as not to bother other library users.  If someone is using the room for study, a person wishing to watch a video must use the headphone set.  Patrons may bring their own headsets if compatible with the system.  If there is only one librarian working, children may be allowed to use the VCR/DVD only with adult supervision.  Librarians will insert and remove videos from the VCR and/or DVD.  Anyone found misusing the machines, discs, or tapes will be asked to leave.  If the same individual continues mistreatment, he/she may lose their privileges.  9/93 ,
