POLICY TITLE: SOLICITATION/PETITIONING ON LIBRARY PROPERTY
EFFECTIVE DATE: JULY 2003
REVISED: JULY 2008
The Pasco County Library System considers use of library property for solicitation/petitioning to constitute acceptance of this policy.
Statement of Policy:
No solicitation of any kind is permitted inside library buildings.
Petitioners may solicit outside library buildings. The following guidelines are to be followed:
Activities must be conducted outside the building and petitioner is to supply his own equipment (table, chairs, etc.)
Petitioner is not to block any entrance to the building. Traffic flow by users entering and exiting the building shall not be impeded. It is recommended that the petitioner set up some distance from the entrance. The petitioner is not guaranteed the use of an area protected from sun, heat, or inclement weather.
Signs may be allowed, but they must be attached to the petitioner’s table. Signs promoting the petitioner cannot be placed on doors or buildings.
Petitioner must in no way affiliate him/herself with the Library or the County, either through written publicity, signage, or verbal statements.
