How It Works
Determine a date and location you are interested in reserving for your event.
Initiate a booking by completing the Rental Request Form with information about your organization and event.
Library staff will determine availability and get back to you about your request within five business days. If your preferred date or location is not available, we will give you a list of alternatives.
Once we finalize a date and location, we will confirm your preferred room setup, tech needs, and other details. We will also give you instructions for paying by check or credit card.
Once we receive your paperwork and payment, your room will be held.
Receipt of a final confirmation of your rental signals the end of the booking process!
Note: Filling out the Booking Request Form does not constitute renting a room with us. After Library staff receive this form, we will contact you about availability and confirm the details of your rental. The room will be booked once we have received your payment. If you would like to reserve rooms for multiple events, please use a separate form for each request.

Rentals may not interfere with normal library operations.
The Library does not provide easels, paper, chalkboards and chalk, or whiteboards and dry erase markers. Please plan to bring these materials with you.
The Library does not allow for any signage or materials to be affixed to walls. No advertisement or wayfinding signage may be used inside or outside the Library. Promotional flyers may be sent to Library administration to be approved and hung prior to your event. Library staff are always happy to help guests with wayfinding.

Last-minute requests for rentals are not possible. A minimum of three weeks is required between the date we receive your paperwork and payment and the the date of your event.
