Siouxland Libraries Meeting Room Policy

Siouxland Libraries meeting rooms are available for free to educational and informational community meetings by non-profit groups.

Prohibited uses of the rooms:

  • fundraising
  • promotion of fee-based products or services
  • the sale of items on the premises
  • when an admission fee is charged

Reserving Rooms

Reservations for meeting rooms can be made up to three months in advance. Reservations for study rooms can be made one month in advance. Study rooms can be booked for up to two hours per session.

Setup and clean up should be included in the time needed for the event when making a reservation.

The library reserves the right to deny use of its facilities, limit frequency of use, and accommodate requests so as not to interfere with regular use of the library.

Priority will be given to library programs. The library may cancel or move a reservation if the room is needed for library or City purposes. Organizations will be given advanced notice in these instances.

Using the Room

Responsible parties must arrive no later than fifteen minutes after the booking start time or forfeit the use of the room to another group. Access to the room outside of the reserved time cannot be guaranteed.

Food and drink are allowed with the stipulation that the room users are responsible for clean up. Group members are also responsible for the supervision of their children while using the room. Any persons using the room must also adhere to Siouxland Libraries' Rules of Conduct.

Meetings must conclude so that all attendees have exited the building before closing time. Repeated failure to comply with the Room Use Policy or the Rules of Conduct will result in suspension of the group from using any Siouxland Libraries rooms.

Library Endorsement

Permission to use the library meeting room does not constitute library endorsement of the group or the views espoused by the group.

Groups using the meeting room should clearly indicate in their advertisements and news releases who is sponsoring the event.
