Photography Policy

The Middlebury Public Library prides itself on providing a safe and enjoyable experience to all its patrons and visitors, offering an atmosphere conducive to unimpeded and enjoyable Library use. To retain the privacy of Library users, the following is the stated policy for photography, filming, and recording in the library.

Library’s Photography/Recording

The Library reserves the right to document its services and the public’s use of the Library by taking photographs and making video or audio recordings of its programs, events, activities and their participants for use in brochures, flyers, web pages, or other promotional materials. To ensure the privacy of all individuals, including children, images will not be identified using personal identifying information or full names without written approval from the photographed subject or parent/guardian if a minor. In some instances, a patron’s first name may be included with a photograph, unless the Library is instructed that this is not acceptable to the individual or the individual’s parent/guardian. Those wishing not to be photographed or recorded should inform the photographer or Library staff.
