Meeting Spaces


Informal meetings in the library's main level
Informal, organized, quiet meetings of 6 or fewer participants may be allowed in one of three spaces in the library’s main level (Teen Zone conference table, Large Print tables, West exit conference table). These spaces, combined with our mobile screen wall, may provide a viable meeting option when the library's private study rooms or the CLC’s lower level Community Meeting Room are not available or appropriate for your use.
Library main level spaces may be available most days before 2:30PM or after 5:30PM, but cannot be guaranteed or reserved. Please be aware that the library’s Code of Conduct will apply. The meeting must also allow customers to access library resources in the same area. Informal main level meetings are not private by nature of their location. However, this option could be just what your small group needs at the last minute! Please check with us in advance of your meeting to decide if library main level space can work for you.

Please keep in mind that a signed application and a $50.00 deposit must be submitted in person or by mail and are required to be on file before confirmation of reservations.
