Filming and photography policy

Approved May 2024

 

GENERAL PUBLIC: Visitors may take casual photographs or video recordings in the public areas of the Moweaqua Public Library. Photographers and videographers must refrain from disrupting or hindering the use of the Library by others. Library staff may stop any photography or filming that appears to interfere with the Library’s ability to conduct business or that compromises public safety or security.

NEWS MEDIA: When possible, Library staff should be notified in advance of visits by the media to avoid potential disruptions. Members of the media should check in with staff upon entering the Library to alert staff of the intent to film or photograph inside the building.

MEETINGS AT THE LIBRARY: Meetings held in the community room are generally open to the public, but filming and photographing are allowed only with the permission of the meeting organizers.  Library staff may stop any photography or filming that appears to interfere with the use of the community room.

LIBRARY PROGRAMS: The Library engages in photographing and filming its events and activities for its own publicity and promotional purposes. Staff will attempt to get permission but attendees should be sure to alert Library staff if they do not want to be photographed or filmed. Attendance at Library-sponsored events constitutes the consent of attendees—and the consent of parents or legal guardians of minor children in attendance—to the broadcast, publication, or other use of visual media at the discretion of the Library.
