Display Case Policy

The Paul Pratt Memorial Library invites Cohasset individuals and community organizations to use the library’s display case for presentations of an educational, cultural, or artistic nature. Display of material on controversial topics must cover a range of views, and does not constitute endorsement of the content by the Paul Pratt Memorial Library. All proposed displays should be artistically pleasing and professionally executed.

  1. Application for displays will be made through the Director’s office. Display case exhibits are generally scheduled for a thirty-day period and scheduling is on a first-come first-serve basis. The Library reserves the right to direct the exhibitor to remove the display at any time.
  2. The Library reserves the right to enhance displays with library books and materials that will contribute to the presentation.
  3. No display materials may be left anywhere at the Library in preparation for the setting up or removal of a display. Set up and removal must take place in as concise a time period as possible.
  4. Any individual or organization wishing to prepare a press release must submit it to the library for review four weeks preceding the exhibit or display. The library reserves the right to write or edit all press releases.
  5. The Library assumes no responsibility or liability for the loss of or damage to any part of an exhibit. All items placed in the library are done so at the owner’s risk. All exhibitors will sign an agreement statement that releases the library from any responsibility for theft or damage.
