Exhibits & Displays

As an educational and cultural institution, the Clarksburg-Harrison Public Library welcomes exhibits and displays of interest and information to the community. Display facilities are reserved first for exhibits and displays related to library business and activities, but may also be used for public service items of educational, cultural, or civic interest. The Library does not necessarily advocate or endorse the viewpoints of parties permitted to utilize display cases or exhibit space.

Regulations for using library display areas:

  • Displays may not be used for advertising or for commercial purposes.
  • The Library assumes no responsibility for the preservation or protection, and no liability for possible damage or theft of any item displayed or exhibited. All items placed in the Library are there at the owner's risk.
  • All exhibits must include a card or plaque indicating who is the exhibitor or sponsor of the exhibit.
  • Duration of the exhibit is to be determined by the library. Any items not picked up in a timely manner after the exhibit has ended will be removed by the library, and the owner will be responsible for any removal costs.
  • A release must be signed by the exhibitor before any artifact can be placed in the library. An example of the release follows:
