Naming Opportunities Policy

Purpose

To provide opportunity for public recognition of individuals or organizations that have made a lasting contribution to the development of library services in the City of Hamilton or significant financial donors.

Guidelines

The naming of a room or facility in recognition of a significant financial donor or individual is a decision that requires special consideration by the Library Board of the value and benefits of such recognition and the suitability of the room or facility for such recognition purposes.

Recommendations for the naming of a room or facility after an individual may be considered to honour the individual’s contribution to the Hamilton Public Library; the naming of a room or facility may also be considered in recognition of a significant financial donation to the Hamilton Public Library.

Rooms or facilities named after the implementation date of this policy require a review by the Hamilton Public Library Board every five (5) years or earlier, at the request of the board, at which time Board approval will be required to renew the named room/facility.
