Board Policy 132: Recording of Library Events

The Library sponsors cultural programs and special events as a part of its mission to help meet the informational, educational and recreational needs and interests of the community.

To make Library programs more widely available, the Library might undertake to record selected events for broadcast on local cable television or for other purposes. To ensure staff accountability for quality; to make certain that performer contracts and material copyrights are not violated; to protect the privacy of individuals who attend programs; to ensure that production equipment and crew do not interfere with Library customers while programs are in progress; and to ensure that the content of Library programs is not altered or misrepresented, productions must be carried out under the supervision of the Library Director or designated representative.

The recording of Library events by individuals or groups, either for broadcast or private use, is not permitted without the prior written consent of the Library Director or designated representative. If advance consent is granted, the Library may attach to said consent any requirements or restrictions based on the best interests of the Library.
