  • Community Bulletin Board

    In addition to the Pressley Meeting Room and Maynard Conference Room, we have a community bulletin board and display case where community members are welcome to share flyers and wares.

    Only the following groups/events may submit a flyer to be posted:

    • Local groups
    • Meetings
    • Cultural events
    • Non-partisan political groups
    • Fundraising events for nonprofit organizations
    • Educational opportunities (whether they are for-profit or nonprofit)
    • Other services that are of a nonprofit, non-self supporting nature


    Flyers must be 8.5x11", no larger, and are to be submitted at the Information desk. Flyers posted without permission by library staff will be taken down.


    Because they may be seen by children or adults, all content on the flyers must meet what is generally known as "a standard acceptable to the community".
