Meeting space is limited. Priority is given to library programs and our community non-profit partners on a first request, first served basis. Programs should be free and open to the public. To inquire about meeting room space, call the library at 797-8510, Monday through Thursday or Saturday 9-5 and ask to speak to the Assistant Director. We prefer at least one week's notice. Events should be scheduled to end 1/2 hour before library closing time. Those attending events in the meeting room should park behind the library off Walnut Street in the library lot or the city lot behind it and enter through the Walnut Street doors.
