General Rules

Beverages in sealed travel containers are allowed. Food is not allowed.

Reservations are forfeited if the party fails to arrive or contact the library within 30 minutes, as we will release the room to walk-in use.

You are responsible for picking up the key from the circulation staff, leaving the room in the clean condition it was in, turning everything off, ensuring the room is locked at the end of the session, and returning key to a circulation staff member.

The keys will be checked out on your library card. Late fees apply, so please return on time. Failure to repeatedly return the keys in a timely manner, could result in large fines or a block on your account. If your reservation is near closing time, please return the key 20 minutes before the library closes so it can be checked in.

Repeated failure to observe these policies may result in a suspension of room use privileges
