Meeting rooms are available for public use in some libraries. Not all library facilities have separate meeting rooms. Please check with your local library to see whether a library meeting room can be booked in your community.
Public use of Library meeting rooms is intended for gatherings of a civic, cultural or educational nature. Use of a meeting room does not imply the Library’s endorsement of the beliefs of the group using the room.
