Non-profit Room Rentals

Please note: The look of the Room Booking Waiver form has recently changed. 

To request a waiver of fees for your room booking:

  • Make your room booking

  • Select your booking type as Non-Profit Groups

  • Proceed to our online waiver form
  • For every booking that you would like to request a waiver of fees you must submit a new waiver form
  • We receive a large volume of room booking requests every month and many groups also request a waiver of fees.  This two-step process ensures that your bookings get processed as quickly as possible.  

Non-profit organizations must meet the following conditions to qualify for the reduced rate:

  • Exist for charitable, educational, cultural or civic purposes
  • Be based in the Tri-Cities, or primarily serve the Tri-Cities community
  • Must not require a donation or fees for participation in or attendance at the program

Non-profit groups may apply to have one meeting room rental fee waived per month with the following conditions:

  • The organization must meet the criteria for non-profit groups as per the above
  • The meeting or event must be of a civic, educational, cultural or social nature
  • The meeting or event must be free – no fundraising, donations or fees for admission/participation shall be collected. Sales presentations and solicitations for business purposes are not permitted.
  • The meeting or event must be open to the general public, and cannot be restricted to the membership of the group. A member of the public that sees the meeting taking place may enter and participate. Exceptions to this requirement may be granted, at the Library’s discretion.

Organizations must apply for a fee waiver at least 7 business days in advance of their booking. The Library will collect sufficient information at time of booking to determine the status of a rental.
