Library meeting rooms are available for educational, informational, or cultural meetings during the hours the library is open. Meetings must be free of charge and open to the public. Admission fees, donations, or other fees may not be charged or solicited. Meeting rooms are not available for fundraising, selling merchandise or services, soliciting for later sales, or placing orders.

Rooms may be reserved for the hours the library is open, but meetings must end 30 minutes prior to closing to allow for cleanup and exiting. Groups are responsible for setting up tables and chairs and for returning the room to its original condition.


Groups are limited to two library meeting room uses per month. Multiple simultaneous room reservations for one event are considered as one use.

How to Reserve a Meeting Room

Please request meeting space through our new online booking system. You will need an email address to book online. Reservations must be made at least one business day in advance to allow time for processing.
