|The Library has two official meeting rooms, generally known as the “Large One” and the “Small One.” The “Large One” will accommodate about 100 people and has a full kitchen adjoining (fridge, stove, microwave, and sink). The “Small One” can accommodate up to 49 people. The two meeting rooms are separated by an accordion-pleat divider and can be opened up to make one large space. The Library’s Nevada Room can also be pressed into service as a meeting room, in case of a scheduling conflict or last-minute needs.
The Library also makes available a large array of audio-visual equipment for meeting use: overhead and opaque projectors, slide projectors, VHS and DVD equipment and a laptop computer with video projector (for use with Powerpoint presentations). A dry board, chalk board and flip-chart easel are also available, if needed.
Mondays through Wednesdays appear to be the most popular days for meetings. Many groups reserve meeting room space months in advance, so if your group wants to meet at the Library, please don’t wait until the last minute to make reservations do it now!
Along with the 454 meetings and programs last year, there were a total of 24 cancellations and “no-shows.” Since the Library reserves meeting room space on a first-come, first-served basis, no-shows are not what we want to see. When your group cancels at the last minute or just doesn’t show up, probably library staff turned another group away from the scheduled time you didn’t show up for. So please, let’s be fair to everyone, and let the library staff know as early as you can when you know your meeting isn’t going to happen. Chances are, another group can use the time slot you’ve vacated.
Call the Library at 293-1281 for room scheduling.
