Policies: Meeting Room Policies

This guide is a companion to the 4CLS Policy Webinar series.

Meeting Room Policies

Libraries are not required to open their meeting rooms for use by outside organizations and individuals.  They can be reserved strictly for library events and programs.

If a library chooses to make their room(s) available, they need a meeting room policy to set the ground rules for reservation and use of the library space.

A library must treat every organization requesting meeting room use equally - regardless of the organization's political or social views.
