Available Facilities

Main Library meeting rooms are available for use during regular public service hours to one half hour before the Library closes. The meeting rooms are not available for such use after regular public service hours (see ‘File Application’, pg.6, for Main Library public service hours).

Frequency of Use


A 78 hour Public notice of groups meeting at the Library requires events shall be cancelled no later than end of business day, Thursday, the week prior to the event date. In this way, others may be able to use the space and assigned support staff may re-schedule time accordingly.

Event Representative

The application must state the responsible party for the program (on the application form under ‘primary contact person’). This person must receive training (orientation) in the use and care of the Library and meeting rooms, be present to open room, greet attendees, and be available to resolve problems that may arise (see ‘Application, Scheduling, Posting’ guideline # 10).
