Meeting Room Rentals

Our meeting room policies and regulations have changed in order to prioritize public meeting room space for open community learning and dialogue, while also providing access opportunities for local commercial and non-profit organizations conducting business or closed meetings in the Library space.

Changes include:

• Separate fees will be charged to commercial (for-profit) and non-profit organizations. Non-profit organizations will receive a discounted rental rate for all bookings.

• Non-profit groups may request one fee waiver per month, if their meeting meets certain conditions

• Commercial businesses, classes, private events, fundraising events, and programs where a fee or donation is required for entry or participation may not request a fee waiver

• Room bookings may be requested outside of regular opening hours (fees will apply)

• The two-bookings-per-month limit has been removed – additional bookings are welcome. Ongoing classes or workshop series (e.g. weekly sessions) require special approval

• Room setup will be available as an added service, for an additional fee

Any rentals that have currently been accepted in our system will be grandfathered under the current room booking regulations. See our room descriptions.


NOTE:
 Food and drink may be served while using the meeting rooms. Please limit to cold foods (sandwiches, fruit/vegetable trays, etc.) as the smell of hot foods can disturb other library customers.
