Meeting room use must be scheduled in advance with either the Library Director or Assistant Library Director.  You may call the library to request a room reservation. The proposed meeting must not conflict with scheduled library activities.


There is no fee for use of meeting rooms during normal library hours. When the library is closed, use of meeting rooms must be negotiated with the director. The fee schedule for meeting room use when the library is closed is $25 per hour, with a minimum of 3 hours. If a person must act as security, $20 per hour fee with a minimum of 3 hours will be charged. A non-refundable deposit of up to 50% of the total estimated fee may be required in advance.
