Online Comment Guidelines

The Los Angeles Public Library encourages and welcomes library users to become engaged with the interactive portions of our website and other digital spaces. This includes commenting on our blog, website, social networking sites and patron ratings and reviews of library materials. We offer these participatory options in the spirit of community engagement, enrichment and empowerment. Before you participate in these activities, we ask that you keep the following in mind:

  • Flaming, personal attacks, inappropriate language and off-topic comments are not permitted.
  • We will remove content that contains abusive, vulgar, offensive, threatening or harassing language, personal attacks of any kind, or offensive terms that target specific individuals or groups.
  • We will remove solicitations of commerce.
  • Comments should be relevant to the specific content that they are attached to.
  • Gratuitous links to sites are viewed as spam and may result in removal.
  • We may remove comments that contain personal information (whether your own or someone else’s), including home address, home or cell phone number, or personal email address, in order to protect privacy.
