Meeting Room

Public Use of the Meeting Room

Richards Memorial Library has a meeting room on the Lower Level which seats approximately 30 people comfortably.  The front ramp and the elevator allow easy access.  This room is available for use by nonprofit, community and government groups when it is not used for Library programs.  The facilities are available on an equitable basis regardless of the beliefs or affiliations of individuals or groups requesting their use.  Use does not constitute an endorsement of the group’s policies or activities.

There is no charge for using the room, but it must be during library hours. (Please check on the Homepage for the hours we are open on the date you are considering.) Nor can the group charge an admission fee or collect any money without the permission of the Library Board of Trustees.

To reserve space, copy and fill out the Meeting Room Application form attachment and email it to or bring it to the library in person.  Applications must be approved by library staff.

Also, please review the “General Rules for Meeting Room Use” attachment.

Please note, the Richards Memorial Library (RML) will begin building renovations in March of 2024. During the renovation period, meeting room requests will be reviewed in the current month only (March dates will be reviewed in March, for example). Meeting room reservations are not guaranteed during renovations. RML may cancel the meeting room reservation at any time based on the renovations. RML will give notice of any cancellation as soon as the information is available to the library staff.
