In keeping with the Library's mission and core values, meeting rooms are available for use by the public when not needed for Library purposes. Use of the Library meeting rooms in no way constitutes endorsement by the Library staff or board of trustees of the viewpoints presented or of the policies or beliefs of those using the meeting rooms.
Only local non-profit groups, units of government, and appointed or elected government officials may use meeting rooms in the Main Library and Branch Libraries without charge. Such use must occur during hours the Library is open. For purposes of this policy, "non-profit group" means a group that is eligible for tax-exempt status under sections 501(c)(3)-(11) of the Internal Revenue Code. Certain groups, as described in the Library Meeting Room Policy, are not eligible for tax exempt status under sections 501(c)(3)-(11): Library Meeting Room Policy
