The Paul Sawyier Public Library offers meeting spaces free of charge to individuals and nonprofit, educational, and governmental organizations as part of our mission to provide open access to materials and resources that inform, educate, enrich, inspire, and entertain. Free meeting spaces are an important and valued community asset. The meeting rooms at PSPL are open on an equitable basis. Requests may be made online or by calling the Library.
PSPL offers three meeting rooms and several study rooms for public use. The Sower Board Room is our smallest space, seating 12 comfortably. The Community Room can accommodate groups ranging from 5 - 50 people in size. The River Room, our largest meeting space, can seat 120 people in a lecture=style set-up, fewer when using a classroom-type setting. Study rooms, located on the second floor, are suitable for 1-3 people at a time.
The Library Board of Trustees and Library administration do not endorse or sponsor groups meeting or endorse the thoughts, principles, or beliefs of any group. All groups will be required to conduct themselves in an orderly and lawful manner. The facilities may not be used for personal, social or commercial activities, political campaigns, promotion of specific political candidates, and/or fund-raising.
Programs, classes, and other activities presented directly by the Library or by an organization with the support of the Library will take precedence over non-library use of these rooms. Other organizations and individuals will be granted use of the rooms on a first-come, first-served basis. If the library is closed due to bad weather, holidays, or any other unforeseen circumstance, the meeting rooms may not be available.
Choose one of three meeting rooms at PSPL, based on your organization’s need. All meeting rooms offer audio and video equipment; training on the use of the equipment is required prior to the meeting date. Training sessions will be scheduled with the PSPL IT staff.
