Online Conduct – Social Media Guidelines

All of Greene County Public Library social media pages are designed to help encourage connection and conversation, while increasing awareness and access within Greene County. The focus will be on our catalog and resources, both digital and physical, as well as programming, events, and other news relevant within our communities.

While we encourage healthy and productive dialogue on social media, Greene County Public Library has the right and obligation to remove any posts or comments as well as block any users that do not adhere to the commenting guidelines below.

Under no circumstances does Greene County Public Library accept or tolerate cyberbullying and/or posts or comments that are discriminatory, illegal, racist, sexist, abusive, profane, violent, or obscene. Additionally, spam, posts that contain falsehoods, are not related to the original post, or that libel, incite, threaten or make attacks on employees, guests or other individuals will be removed. We also do not permit messages selling products or promoting commercial or other ventures. Using the library’s name to promote or endorse any product, cause or political party or candidate is not permitted.

Participation is at the discretion and risk of the individual, who is expected to take personal responsibility for the individual's social media identity, including (but not limited to) comments, username and any information provided. Please be aware that all content and posts are bound by that platform’s terms of service.
