Signs and Posters

Posted: Feb 18, 2017

The posting of signs and posters as well as the distributing of notices or other advertisements inside of library facilities requires the approval of Library Administration. Inquiries about posting or distributing materials should be directed to the Service Desk or to the Manager of Public Services (x8684).

With one exception as specified below, no signage may be affixed to the exterior of the Folsom Library:

  • Approved campus campaign posters may be displayed on the pillars outside of the Folsom Library's Main Entrance during GM Week.

Display or distribution of approved materials is restricted to designated bulletin boards and easels. Approved materials must clearly identify sponsoring parties and show expiration dates. Unauthorized materials will be removed and discarded upon discovery by library staff.

  • Examples of acceptable notices include:
    • Announcements of local and campus meetings, special seminars, lectures, concerts, etc.
  • Examples of unacceptable notices include:
    • Advertisements and sales offers from commercial enterprises, or flyers not clearly identifying the sponsoring group or person.
  • A message board for informal, daily communications by library users is located beside the 2nd floor center stairwell of the Folsom Library. Typical postings include notes about where groups or individuals are studying in the Library, listings of personal items for sale, or special club programs. This location is checked daily by library staff for expired or unauthorized postings.
