Community Bulletin Board Guidelines

The Circulation Department is responsible for the appearance and timeliness of items posted on public bulletin boards. Notices should be given to staff for posting.

In providing public bulletin boards or binders, the Library does not imply endorsement of the events or services advertised.

Non-Profit Postings:
  • Priority will be given to Library notices, followed by Waltham based community events. Other notices will be posted as space permits.
  • One notice may be posted by community organizations and clubs, cultural and educational events, educational institutions, government agencies, and other non-profit organizations.
  • Notices should generally be no larger than 8-1/2" x 11" but larger notices will be considered, space permitting.
  • Notices may be posted for 30 days, space permitting; each notice will be marked with the date it was posted.

For-Profit and Services for a Fee notices (housecleaning, tutoring, lessons, etc.) are kept in a binders in the Reference Department for the general population.

Child Friendly For-Profit and Services for a Fee (babysitting, camps, tutoring, lessons, etc.) are kept in a binder in the Children's Room.

  • Individuals offering a service must include the name of the individual or business as well as contact information. A description of the individualís qualifications should be provided either on the notice or on a Web site whose address is included on the notice.
  • Notices may be no larger than 8-1/2" x11" in order to fit in the binder.
  • Notices may be posted for 30 days, space permitting; each notice will be marked with the date it was posted.

Library Administration has the final decision on what is or is not acceptable for the community bulletin board. We do not accept responsibility for any material, and we reserve the right to remove any notice and dispose of it, at any time. Anything posted on walls, doors, or windows will be removed.
