Facilities Rental Policy

Our meeting rooms and the Charles Talbot Porter Meeting Hall are available for reservation during library hours for educational, civic, and cultural purposes. Rooms may not be reserved by any entity making a profit from the time spent in the library. Rental fees may apply to any group or organization.  After-hours use of the facilities and use of certain library technologies will require a contract.

Space will be made available to community groups regardless of the beliefs and affiliations of the members. However, the Library Director will judge the suitability of groups’ requests for use of Skidompha’s facilities. The Library’s programs will have priority over any other use.
