The Room of Requirement accommodates up to 53 people, with 5 tables and 30 chairs. It has a vinyl floor, a large area rug and 2 sinks. It is located in the children's room on the first floor of the library, accessible by either a ramp or a small staircase.

The Study Rooms are located on the second floor. Two are reservable: One near the Adult Services information desk, the other near the science fiction collection. Each room seats 4 people. The one by the desk contains a 4-person study table and the other seats 2 people on each side of the room. Rooms can be reserved for 2-hour time slots once per day (three maximum schedulings). There is a Quiet Study area with multiple tables and desks in the historic part of the library available for drop in study. For more information, please see our Study Room Procedure.
All rooms are equipped with tables and chairs. Upon request, the library can provide a projector, speaker and microphones.

In the kitchen adjacent to the meeting room, you can also use a refrigerator, sink, microwave, electric kettle, coffee maker, and 18-55 cup coffee urn.

Please note that library assistance with equipment is not available.
Your meeting may continue after hours (but no later than 10pm) if:

a) the meeting begins during library hours, and
b) the contact person notifies library staff at least 24 hours before the meeting begins with a completed After Hours Use Form, taking responsibility for additional procedures.

The rooms cannot be used on days that the library is closed entirely.

The Meeting Room and Conference Rooms will be isolated from the rest of the library with a pull-down gate. Rest rooms will still be available. The Room of Requirement is not available for after hours.
Yes! The library has very limited parking which must remain available for other library activities. Groups of 50+ people using the Meeting Room should use the town parking lot at the corner of Pierce and Hudson Streets.
