The needs of the Library will take precedence. Community groups and sponsors of educational and cultural events are welcome to use the meeting rooms subject to availability and adherence to the following policies and guidelines.

All requests for meeting room use must be approved by the Librarian or designee. The Librarian may use the Application for Using Library Meeting Facilities.

individual will be liable. Young children accompanying adult users of the meeting room shall not be left unattended in the Library.

Groups are responsible for arranging the chairs, tables, and other equipment to meet their own needs. Following their use of the room, groups must leave the room in a clean and neat condition.
