Explanation of Filming Rights On Library Premises
No person has an absolute right to be on Library premises or to film such premises, the Library’s customers or Library staff. The Library’s filming policy [Onsite Media/ Film Requests] is accessible online here: https://www.tulsalibrary.org/about
State and federal case law clearly provide that public entities, such as the Tulsa City-County Library, may establish reasonable rules and policies governing the public’s use of their facilities. As to a public library, its powers to regulate patron behavior are not limited to cases of “actual disruption”. Rather courts have held that libraries may regulate activity by any person on library property in order to promote the safety of others as well as the efficient access of the public and staff to materials. Examples of regulations fulfilling these goals include, but are not limited to, requiring persons, while on library property, to be engaged in library associated activities as well as prohibiting harassment and any activities that create a nuisance to others. In addition, the Library reserves the right to pursue all civil and other criminal remedies available to it including, but not limited to, injunctive relief, protective orders and criminal prosecutions for harassment by telephone, social media and other electronic equipment.
The Library’s policy on filming within the Library is consistent with and designed to facilitate the foregoing goals and is clearly lawful. Should you so desire, your lawyer may contact the Library’s legal counsel as to this matter by submitting a written request to the Library’s Public Relations Office.
