Meeting Room Booking Guidelines
Application for a series of meetings in the next calendar year will be taken after September 1st of the current year. An application for a single meeting will not be accepted more than (12) months in advance of the meeting date. In the interest of providing service to as many groups as possible, use of meeting rooms by any one group is limited to 6 hours per month.
There are no tutorial rooms available. This is necessary to economize on set-up and application processing times. Groups of four (4) and under are welcome to use a table in the Library, if they are quiet and considerate of other patrons.
7-day advance notice is required when booking meeting rooms.
The Library does not provide any office services, equipment or supplies including, but not exclusively fax, telephone, photocopying, and computers except, as available in regular patron areas. The Library does not have staff available for loading, unloading, or carrying of any group’s materials.
