The Pasadena Public Library is the information center for its community and encourages the free expression of ideas essential to an informed citizenry. To accomplish this role, the first objective of the Library is to serve as an active resource for learning, studying and contemplating ideas. This objective is evidenced by, but not limited to, the basic functions of libraries in checking out books and other material as well as the offering of programs and services which advance the knowledge and experience of the citizens we serve. The offering of meeting room and exhibit space in our libraries is one of many methods used to foster greater free expression and free access to ideas representing all points of view on all subjects.
There are exhibit spaces in many Pasadena Public Library branches as well as the Central Library. The Pasadena Central Library has several exhibit spaces available throughout the main floor of the library, which feature displays from different community organizations and individuals. If you are interested in creating an exhibit for display in the library, please review the following documents governing the use of library exhibit space before contacting the library about your exhibit:
