  1. POLICY

    2. Smoking (tobacco and electronic) is prohibited on Library property.
       
    3. Use of the rooms must be done in a responsible manner, with the Library Rules of Conduct adhered to at all times. The Library reserves the right to withdraw permission for room use when conditions so warrant and to stop meetings which interfere with the normal operations of the Library.

    3. The card holder submitting the application accepts the Library’s terms and conditions for the use of the room and takes responsibility to see that all conditions of use are followed. The acceptance of Library terms and conditions (electronically or in person) assigns responsibility for loss or damages to the room and its contents to the card holder submitting the request.
       
    4. Applicants will receive confirmation by phone or email, verifying date, time and acceptance or denial of the requests.
       
    5. A pre-determined number of rooms will typically be available daily on a walk-in basis, and are not reservable in advance.
       
    6. Any room not reserved will be available on a walk-in basis.
       
    7. Call Center staff should be notified as soon as possible if a room reservation has been cancelled.
