Reserve a Meeting Room

I Want To... Reserve a Meeting Room

Library sponsored activities have first priority in scheduling. Due to high demand, each group or organization may reserve the room only once each month. There will be no fees for use of the room. Reservations are taken on a first come, first served basis. Reservation of a room by a group indicates the group's willingness to abide by library policies and procedures. The Library reserves the right to dismiss or limit a group from the use of a room at any time.

The Library meeting rooms in each library are available to non-profit public gatherings of a civic, cultural, or educational nature on an equitable basis regardless of the beliefs or affiliations of individuals or groups requesting use. The Library makes these facilities available to promote cultural and educational opportunities and to promote an open exchange of ideas into the community. The fact that a group is permitted to use a room does not in any way constitute an endorsement of the group's policies or beliefs by the Library.

How to Reserve a Meeting Room:

To reserve a meeting room, call your local branch and speak with a library professional. We will then check our calendar and if there is an availability, we will schedule your meeting for the desired time slot. Library meeting rooms can be scheduled during normal operating hours, however groups are allowed to use the library meeting rooms after the Library is closed under certain circumstances.

After Hours Meeting:

A key will be signed out to an adult 18 years or older who will be responsible for opening and locking the Library for the meeting, plus be present for the meeting. A Responsibility Statement must be signed by the person picking up the library key. THE KEY MUST BE PICKED UP DURING REGULAR BUSINESS HOURS. The key is to be placed in an envelope and put in the book drop immediately after meeting room use and library is locked. No group is allowed to keep a library key on an extended basis. A lost key fee of $150.00 shall be charged to any group or individual who does not return the library’s key in a timely manner. Such groups or individuals are restricted from afterhours meeting room access until the library key is returned or lost key fee is paid. All meetings involving children and youth must have two (2) adults present.
