Personal capture of the space cannot affect or impede the public use of the building, and as such, we have the following rules:

The Library will post filming notices when capturing events, programs, etc. in the space. Third parties cannot use this signage to cover their own duty to secure releases.

The use of tripods, lighting equipment, and drones is not allowed. Photography sessions must not interfere with public access or use of Library spaces.
