Meetings & Meeting Spaces

Our meeting rooms are available to governmental agencies and community organizations engaged in educational, cultural, intellectual, charitable, advocacy, religious, political, civic, and other non‐commercial activities. Private and for-profit uses of the meeting rooms are prohibited. 

Permission to use rooms does not imply Library endorsement of the goals, policies, or activities of any individual or organization. We do not endorse the viewpoints of meeting room users and may not appear to do so in an organization’s publicity for meetings. Our staff may review promotional materials before use to verify the Library is not depicted as endorsing meeting room activities. 

The applicant and their organization are fully responsible for following all Library policies. If an organization requires security personnel to ensure the safety of attendees, it is to be arranged at its expense and must comply with our Public Behavior Policy., opens a new window
