Reserve a Room

The library is not tracking patron use or attendance in its meeting spaces. The person making the reservation is responsible for any safety protocols the group will use within the room. The library assumes no responsibility for the wearing of masks, maintaining social distance, or contact tracing from possible exposure to the COVID-19 virus. The group using the room assumes any risk from gathering as a group.

Your reservation is not confirmed until you receive an email saying it is approved.  24 hours prior to your approved meeting the system will send you an automated reminder email. You can also call the library to confirm.
