Due to the pandemic, the downstairs meeting rooms are currently not available for public use. The upstairs rooms are available for use, but their seating capacity has been reduced to 3. We anticipate the restrictions being removed when the Goodhue COVID-19 transmission rate, as determined by the CDC, drops below the substantial level and the City drops its mask mandate for City buildings.
The Library has two small study rooms, each seating about 8 people. The Quiet Study room may not be reserved and is available to all on a first come, first served non-exclusive basis. The Group Study room may be reserved for up to 2 hours per day with a minimum of 2 hours advance notice and can be reserved no more than 30 days in advance. The room will be released for use by others if the reserving party is more than 15 minutes late. There is no fee.
The Library has two large meeting rooms which are available to the public on an equitable basis, regardless of the beliefs, affiliations, or economic standing of individuals or groups requesting their use. For more information, see the full guidelines.
