Community Room & Board Room Usage
Members of the public are welcome to reserve the Community Room or Board Room for events and meetings.
In order to qualify, the event must be free and open to the public and must be of a civic, cultural, or educational character. Meetings may not be for commercial or strictly social purposes. You may use the Community Room for recurring meetings, but we do ask that you limit your use to no more than four meetings in a one year period, and preferably not more than once in a three-month period.
There is no charge for using these spaces. Setup, tear down, and clean up responsibilties all fall to the party reserving the space. If you would like to have refreshments at your event, please be sure to ask when you first reserve the room. Refreshments must be approved by the Library Director. Meals are not allowed.
We do not allow any items to be sold in our public spaces. We also prohibit the collection of donations for any organization on library property, save for the Normal Public Library Foundation.

Please be sure to ask about using these resources at the time that you apply for the room. If you would like to make a presentation that involves projecting your computer screen, you will need to bring in a computer and the necessary adapters to connect the computer to the projector via VGA.
