Community Bulletin Board Policy
TOWN OF ACTON'S LIBRARIES COMMUNITY BULLETIN BOARD POLICY
Effective August 16, 2023
Acton Memorial Library and West Acton Citizens’ Library provide a limited amount of bulletin board space in the library for non-commercial individuals, groups, and organizations in the community to display civic, cultural, and educational information, and to announce events and services that are of general and current interest. These types of materials are different from the library’s collection of print and non-print materials and are not selected by library staff. Acceptance of materials for display does not imply the library’s endorsement of a group or organization, its policies or beliefs.
Terms and Conditons for Posting
- Bulletin board space is provided for announcements of dated non-recurring Acton events; other event announcements will be considered, space permitting.
- All materials posted must be approved and posted by designated library staff. Materials posted or left on tables without authorization will be removed and discarded.

- All materials must appear professional. Handwritten material will not be posted.
- Materials specific to Acton take precedence over materials from neighboring communities.
