      1. Set-up and remove the exhibit according to agreed upon dates.

      2. Agree that the contents of any display are at the risk of the exhibitor and any damage to or loss of any such items is exclusively the responsibility of the exhibitor and not the City of Fayetteville or the Fayetteville Public Library. This includes any damage done by City or Library personnel while handling these items or their loss by theft.
