1005 Naming Rights

The ImagineIF Library Board of Trustees shall have sole responsibility for naming or
renaming library facilities and/or subunits of facilities.

Generally, facility subunits shall be named according to ImagineIF branding guidelines and
professional best practices in libraries. However, ImagineIF Libraries also offers naming
rights for facility subunits when the Library wishes to recognize substantial financial
contributions to support library facilities. With regards to contributions from corporations,
ImagineIF Libraries adheres to Flathead County’s Advertising Policy. Moreover, as to
contributions from corporations, in the event of a conflict between Policy 1005: Naming
Rights and Flathead County’s Advertising Policy, the Advertising Policy controls.

Naming opportunities may be offered to individuals, families, foundations, organizations or
corporations to recognize financial support for library facilities and sub-units of library
facilities. These opportunities will be administered by the ImagineIF Library Foundation, in
collaboration with Library staff. All such naming opportunities must be approved by the
Library Board of Trustees and administered in compliance with guidelines and procedures
developed by the Library Director (Addendum A).

Naming rights may not be offered into perpetuity. The duration of naming rights will be
outlined in the guidelines and procedures.

The Library Board authorizes the Library Foundation and Library staff to carry out such a
program for recognition of major donors, as approved by the Board, with the clear
understanding that the standards and guidelines of the program will be administered
unitarily and equally at all times. The Board shall have thirty (30) days to modify a
commitment.
