Meeting Room Policy

Revised 11/30/2011

 

The meeting room is available only to individuals or organized groups in the library service area. Exceptions may be made by the Library Board if the Board deems extenuating circumstances are involved.

 

The fact that a group is permitted to meet at the Library does not in any way constitute an endorsement of the group’s policies or beliefs by the Library staff or board.

 

An individual or group may sell merchandise, charge fees, and solicit for later sales contracts or placement of orders.  This will be at the discretion of the library director.  There will be a $10.00 charge for use of the room plus a $15.00 refundable cleaning deposit.

 

The library programming will have first priority in room use.

 

The room may be reserved no more than ninety days in advance, except in special circumstances. A reservation fee of $10.00 is required and will be returned when the party making the reservation occupies the room. There will no charge for use of the meeting room during the library’s regular open hours unless room is used to sell or solicit sales.  There will be a charge of $25.00 for use after hours, $15.00 of which is a refundable cleaning deposit.

 

Refreshments may be served and supplies shall be provided by the group. Decorations must be pre-approved by library staff. No smoking, alcohol, or drug use is permitted.

 

The people using the room shall leave it in neat, clean, orderly condition with all trash removed. If not, the group/individual will forfeit the clean up deposit and be given notice that continued offense will result in denied access to the meeting room.

 

The library is not responsible for any equipment, supplies, material, clothing, or other items brought in to the Library by any group or individual attending a meeting.

 

The Library Board and staff do not assume any liability for groups or individuals attending a meeting in the Library.
