Rules for using library meeting rooms

Please review the Meeting Room Policy and Administration of Meeting Room Use Policy if you plan to use a meeting room.

  • The library does NOT provide computers for meeting room use.
  • The Spokane Public Library provides meeting rooms to the community as a public service during open hours at all their branches.
  • Public meeting room use is free but a fee will be charged if the room is left in disarray, if the room is left dirty or if there is a custom set-up requested. Each room has a standard set-up, and you are welcome to re-arrange the chairs or bring more chairs out of the closet, as long as the room is returned to its standard set-up before you leave. If you need to have tables moved from the standard set-up or need additional tables, this must be requested when your application is turned in and there will be a $35 charge for the custom set-up. Only library staff members are allowed to move the tables in the meeting rooms.
  • Meetings may be scheduled as little as two days in advance of the meeting but no more than four months in advance. The maximum number of meetings a group may have reserved on our calendar, at one time, is three meetings.
  • To reserve a meeting room contact the location you are interested in to check on availability. A completed and signed meeting room application form must be submitted to the library staff at least two days prior to the meeting date. Reservations are not confirmed until the form is submitted and the request is approved.
  • Use of audiovisual equipment should be requested at the time of booking.
  • Wireless internet service is available in all meeting rooms.
