Guidelines for Shapiro Screens

When working with us for a digital showcase or promotion, send your file to at least two weeks before your scheduled opening day to allow time for editing and proofing.

We’re available to consult with you about best practices for design and content.

By submitting content to be used on screens in the library, you give the library permission to also use the content in promotional materials without compensation, and agree to allow your content to be reformatted to display properly. 

We will assume you have been given permission to use the image of anyone who is identifiable in your content submission. 

Use of content you submit, for any purpose, will be credited to you.
