Community Room

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and CDC guidelines, we are unable to allow public use of our rooms. We are not taking any reservations at this time.

Maximum room capacity 100

The Community Room is a large, open space that can comfortably seat up to 100 adults in theater-style seating or 78 adults at tables and chairs.  Primarily used for Library programs and events, the Community Room is also available for a variety of public uses. 

The Community Room is the perfect space for meetings of local organizations, professional workshops or trainings, or groups needing a space outside of the Library’s regular operating hours.  It features a raised platform for program leaders who need additional elevation, electrical outlets, data ports, and access to the Library’s Wi-Fi. The room’s set-up is flexible. Tables and chairs may be rearranged by the user, but the room must be returned to its original condition upon exit.  Additional audiovisual equipment, such as laptops or video conferencing technology, is available upon request. The Community Room has access to the public restrooms, a kitchenette, and a storeroom with additional tables and chairs. 

Read our complete Community Room Policy.

Use of the Community Room for Social Events

When the room is not in use by the Library or any other acceptable use as listed in the policy, requests for use of the room for social events, such as parties, showers, or reunions, will be considered for a $75.00 rental fee plus a $25.00 cleaning and damage deposit.  Under no circumstance may such events take place during normal operating hours. 

To reserve the room, a reservation application must be completed and the full fee of $100.00 must be paid within one week of the reservation confirmation or the reservation will not be held.  After the event, if the room passes the follow-up walkthrough, the $25.00 deposit will be returned.

The user must notify the Library of cancellation of the reservation at least 48 hours in advance to allow for other uses of the room.  Without 48-hour notice, the $75.00 rental fee will be forfeited.

The entirety of the Community Room Policy applies to social events and the user agrees to its terms.
