Mid-Continent Public Library (MCPL) provides reservable rooms for public use at many of its locations. These community and meeting rooms are available for reservation when not being used for Library activities. MCPL also has Special Event Spaces available for reservation.
Community and Meeting Room Policies
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 or personal events (e.g., birthday parties, wedding receptions, class reunions). Use of small meeting rooms that are free of charge is limited to 2 hours per day per individual or group. If no other customers are waiting for the room, time may be extended at staff discretion. 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.
Community rooms can be booked up to 90 days in advance. You may contact the location you are interested in with questions regarding scheduling. 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.
Customers reserving small meeting rooms have 15 minutes after the scheduled start time to use the room or notify staff of their late arrival. Otherwise staff may cancel the reservation so it is available for other customers.
