Community Room Policies

Per MCPL Board Policy:

"Community rooms are available to organizations or groups composed primarily of residents of the Mid-Continent Public Library District. Facilities may not be used for commercial purposes (i.e., sale of goods or services). Use of a community room is limited to 2 hours. Times can be extended as long as no other Library users need the room. All uses of the Community Rooms are expected to comply with the guidelines outlined in the Library Conduct Policy."

Permission to use a Library community room does not constitute or imply MCPL endorsement of the aims, policies, or activities of any group or organization, or the views expressed by third parties hosting the meeting. Customers may request a copy of MCPL Board Policy from branch staff.

Making a Reservation

Reservations may be made in person, by phone or online at mymcpl.org. No fee is charged for collaboration rooms or conference rooms, which are limited to a two-hour reservation. Larger rooms (with a maximum occupancy greater than 10) may have a cost-recovery fee. Please contact the branch regarding room costs or if you want to reserve a larger room for more than two hours. Any person using a Community Room must sign a Community Room Agreement Form.

Room Fees

Tier 1 — 1-16 attendees
$10 set-up + $15/hour

Tier 2 — 17-40 attendees
$15 set-up + $15/hour

Tier 3 — 40+ attendees
$20 set-up + $15/hour

Organizations may not, in advance, excessively book a community room. The Library shall determine what is excessive based on time and day of request and intervals between meetings.

Paying for a Room Reservation

Payment for reservation fees must be made with either cash or credit card. Bills will not be issued. Payments should be made at the branch where the room is reserved and must be received before the meeting start time. Cancellations must be made three days prior to reservation in order to receive refund.

NOTE:
You will receive two emails from MCPL. The first states the reservation request was received. The second approves the request. Reservation requests are pending until the reservation has been approved.
