Movie License, Public Libraries

Movie License Available for Vermont Public Libraries

The Department of Libraries has once again purchased a motion picture public performance license with Movie Licensing USA for use in Vermont public libraries.

This license will permit the FREE public performance of movies (from selected Hollywood studios) in public library buildings.  This new contract covers the period of June 1, 2013 - May 31, 2014.

Here are some details:

  1. This license is available free for all Vermont public libraries.*
  2. To use this license at your library you must have a  NEW signed agreement in file at the Department of Libraries.
  3. Complete the form online or print it out (remember to sign it and include the number of active/registered borrowers).  Active borrowers are registered borrowers who have used their library cards during the previous year; all automated libraries should provide this number.  Email or mail the form to the Department of Libraries.
  4. The license covers only those Hollywood studios listed on the Agreement Form.  For motion pictures by studios not covered by this license, contact the studio directly to arrange a public performance.  Use the Movie Licensing USA website http://www.movlic.com to verify that movies are covered by the license, to generate free posters with the original movie art, and to get great programming ideas.
  5. Rules about showing and advertising movies in your libraries are included in the Agreement Form.
  6. A requirement of this agreement is for participating libraries to record and submit to the Vermont Department of Libraries statistics regarding the use of this Motion Picture Public Performance license for the period of June 1, 2012 – May 1, 2013.
  7. Once we receive your signed Agreement Form we will send you the license certificate for your library.
