Community Room
What Is the Community Room?
The Community Room is a large multipurpose room that is available for public use.  It can be separated into three smaller meeting rooms that will comfortable seat 30-35 persons each.  The meeting rooms are available at no rental fee for public gatherings of a civic, cultural or educational purpose, but not for social gatherings, dramatic productions requiring stage equipment or for commercial purposes.  Library Director approved businesses may use the meeting rooms.  Donations are greatly appreciated.

Youth groups are welcomed but must have an adult sponsor and one adult for every ten young people must be in attendance at all times.

Policies and Procedures
Groups and businesses using the rooms are responsible for familiarizing themselves with the Policies and Procedures. No alcoholic beverages, illegal drugs, or smoking are allowed and those using the room must furnish their own supplies.

All groups using the meeting rooms are provided with a Clean-Up Checklist which must be completed and returned at the conclusion of room use.  Clean-up by library maintenance staff may incur a $100.00 fee.

How to Reserve the Community Room
Reservations are made on a first-come, first-served basis and should be made for a room or combination of rooms sufficient for your anticipated meeting size. Availability of space may be checked by phone, but reservations are not definite until a signed application is received and a deposit made, if required.

Permission to use the rooms shall be granted to qualifying groups when their application has been approved by the Library Director. Library sponsored programs and the programs of the library's affiliated organizations will be given priority in the reservation of meeting room space. Booking for regularly scheduled meeting dates may be made in advance for the current calendar year.

Application should be made in person, if possible, during library office hours at least 24 hours in advance of the meeting date.
