[Michlib-l] Solicitors at library

Quick question for the collective...

First time I've had someone want to "solicit" at the library and not sure of legalities. Woman wanted to hand out information and give a spiel about (against) the new wireless meters that Consumer's is installing.  I told her that she can, but that she had to be away from the door.  She was pleasant but aggressive towards people in the parking lot - made them uncomfortable.

Where's the best place for me to find out what her rights are and how to protect my patrons?

Thanks in advance!  I appreciate your replies that are saving me time on a sunny Saturday afternoon... when I'm late meeting my kid! :->)
