Bulletin Board Usage Policy

The Paul Pratt Memorial Library views our public Bulletin Boards as a place for non-profit organizations within our community to advertise their functions, and for private individuals within our community to advertise their services (teens advertising babysitting services or music teachers advertising lessons for, example). It is open to all. In order to ensure that each member of our community has a fair chance to advertise their events and services, the guidelines listed below should be followed:

  1. Please limit postings to two per individual or organization. In fairness each posting should announce a different event or service. As a courtesy to others, the total area of a groups’ postings should be no larger than 11” x 17”. All posted materials should be neat and easy to read.
  2. Since space is limited, we suggest submitting postings to the circulation or reference desks three to four weeks prior to the function. While we would like to allow everyone to post for as long as they want, space limitations do not allow this. Postings may be removed or delayed, at the discretion of the library, to keep the bulletin board current and timely. So that postings do not accumulate, posters, announcements, and handouts will be stamped and dated and removed after four weeks of posting.
  3. A special area is designated for Town of Cohasset postings.
  4. A second special area is designated for youth events and services. (This area will be used to ensure that Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Sport’s Organizations, School Organizations and aspiring young entrepreneurs will not be left out.)
