Library meeting rooms are primarily for the use by the Library, library-related organizations, and library-sponsored programs. When not being utilized by the Library or library-related organizations, they may be used for meetings of local groups and organizations.

Before requesting the use of  a room, please read the Facilities Use Policy for additional details. If your group qualifies, check the online calendar for room availability. If the room is available, organizations must complete a Space Reservation Request Form. All requests must be approved by the Director. Groups using Beaman Library's meeting rooms are responsible for set-up and clean-up.
