Public Meeting Rooms

The library has two meeting rooms that are available for public meetings of a non-sectarian, nonpolitical, educational, philanthropic, cultural, or civic nature. The Trustees Room contains a large oak table, eight oak chairs, and several folding chairs. The room can handle up to 18 people. The Peggy Dirk Brenner Friends room has a small kitchen, projection equipment, a large movie screen, a lectern, and two microphones. An overhead projector and easels are also available. Normally the room is set up for 20 to 25 people to sit around large tables in the rear and has auditorium seating for about 50 people in the front portion. The room can hold a maximum of 110 people with auditorium seating.

Availability

Regularly scheduled library or library-related activities are given preference for the use of the rooms. Reservations are on a first come-first served basis. Public meetings may not interfere with normal library operations.
