The mission of the Royal Oak Public Library is to be an informational, intellectual, cultural and recreational resource for all people; to inspire the spirit, educate the mind, and be a center of community pride. In keeping with this mission, Royal Oak Public Library provides space for the display notices of public interest submitted by groups, organizations, and governmental units engaged in non-profit educational, cultural, intellectual, civic or charitable activities.

Only Library-approved postings will be permitted. Tracts or other publications placed in the Library without prior approval will be removed and discarded.

The Library reserves the right to determine that a proposed posting meets the guidelines of this policy and to decide the appropriate placement for postings and literature to be distributed. Commercial or partisan political items will not be posted or distributed.

In order to maximize the use of limited display space, time and size restrictions are set:

Bulletin Board Postings and Posters

Free Literature Racks
