  • City sponsored displays have priority at the discretion of the Library Director.

Display space is not available:

The hallway display cases are 46"x46"x10" deep, with glass shelving available. You must supply all of your materials including thumb tacks, backdrops, tape, etc. Displays should be placed on the 1st of the month and must be removed on the last day of the month. If you display isn't in the case by the 5th of the month, the space will be reassigned. The cases do have locks, but neither the City of Oak Ridge nor the Oak Ridge Public Library will be liable for any damage or theft of displayed materials.
