Social Media Policy

The Quarryville Library Center uses social media to enhance the Quarryville Library Center’s mission to provide the freedom to experience the joy of reading, the discovery of new ideas, and the power of knowledge while fulfilling the cultural and social needs of the southern Lancaster County community. The purpose of this policy addresses the use of social media platforms or accounts created and maintained by the Quarryville Library Center.

The Quarryville Library Center does not utilize or store personal information from any third-party site other than in communication with users on corresponding sites unless users grant permission.

Comments or postings from users on the library’s social media platforms do not reflect the views of the library, its officers, or its employees. Posting personal information on any library social media account is discouraged; the library is not responsible for personal information users post about themselves. Information posted by the public will be reviewed by library staff; library staff reserves the right to review and delete comments deemed inappropriate.

Staff may block or ban users who comment or post within the following guidelines, and the comment/post in question will be deleted:

  • Obscene content or hate speech.
  • Harassing or threatening comments.
  • Comments or posting using profane or obscene statements or images.
  • Libelous statements.
  • Plagiarizing or posting copyrighted material without permission or authority.
  • Comments, postings, and/or hyperlinks not related to content created by library staff.
  • Private or personal information of another person without consent or authority.
  • Advertisements and solicitations not expressly permitted by the library.
  • Images, photos, or videos that fall into any of the above guidelines.
