We are in the process of greatly updating our meeting room use policy and ask for you input.  Attached is a draft.

It is modeled after other libraries’ policies, but we may have local needs to address.

When reading it, consider our new facility with indoor and outdoor areas that people can reserve.  Think of how your organization, club, church, etc. might want to use a community room or outdoor patio.  Is there anything in the policy that would be a barrier to use?  Are there things in it where you have questioned whether we have considered the implications of this use for other library patrons and library neighbors?

I appreciate your help.

Thank you!
