Public Library provides a meeting room in the Main
Library for public use when the room is not being
used for library activities. Generally, there are
two rooms available; one contains 4 tables and
25 chairs and the other contains 25 chairs.
Who May Use the Rooms?
Meeting rooms are available on
equal terms to all non-profit groups in the community
regardless of the beliefs and affiliations of their
members. All meetings and programs must be open
to anyone who wants to attend and must be consistent
with the informational, educational, and recreational
purposes of the library. No solicitation is allowed.
No admission fee may be charged.
The use of the meeting rooms for personal political
campaigns will not be permitted.
The Birchard Library Board of Trustees has determined
that all workshops or seminars on financial, estate
or retirement planning, and related topics will
be considered "for profit" ventures and,
therefore, sponsoring groups or individuals will
not be permitted to use the library meeting rooms.
If there is doubt as to the eligibility of a group,
the question will be referred to the Library Director.
Please consult the brochure and application for
How Much Does It Cost?
Birchard Public Library is pleased
to provide meeting and program space to community
groups at no charge.

No, the library staff will not
set up the room. Groups are also responsible for
clean-up and returning the room to its original
set-up. Please see the brochure and application
for more information.
